Reflection on “Wars Over Christian Beards” by Christianity Today.

10 Oct

Today I came across this article about beards and Christianity.

How do Christians get stuck on things that really don’t matter. Faith and manhood goes much deeper than a beard. It’s about the person behind the beard. And their relationship with a man named Jesus.

Sometimes I think some of us have shaved too close, scrapping away all common sense. Instead of judging on the outward appearance, how about loving. Love for other comes when we see their value in Christ, and not what the person looks like. His love will pour out of us so that we can love others…regardless of whether they have facial hair or not.
