"Ogres are like onions. They have lots of layers." (Shrek)


This morning I woke up with extra people in my house, so I had to straighten my hair in my mom's room. Well I was sitting there thinking about nothing in particular when I noticed for the millionth time that the top layer of my hair looked horrible before straightening. The bottom layers all looked fine after I straightened them, but when I let down that last layer it looked HORRIBLE. That really got me thinking. In our lives, many Christians just work on the inside or bottom layers. They never try to straighten out their top layer. If we just work on the inside no one will ever see the progress. We have to shine inside AND out. Every person has layers to their personality. Try to make the God filled one come out on top.
