“…Despite what some claim, vanity and prejudice aren’t just imposed on us by society. They are part of the human condition! The Bible reveals that men and women are fallen creatures. We were made in the image of God but, having turned away from God, we are constantly trying to remake ourselves in some other image. It is not enough to be who we really are because, in moments of honesty, we know we are not what we ought to be! In the words of Jeremiah 49:23, we ‘are disheartened, troubled like the restless sea.’ I know I was—until I met Jesus!”
