Before digital cameras, photoshop, picture filters, and special effects there was instant Polaroid cameras. Inventor, Edwin Land introduced this technology in 1947. Did you know the iconic large bottom border of a Polaroid contains pouches of chemicals? When the photo is ejected from the camera it is squeezed between two rollers which burst the bags and smear the chemicals onto the photo, developing it. Our world is obsessed with preserving the outer man when we all should be more focused on the inner man. (Read 2 Cor 4:16) I love viewing old Polaroid pics because it’s a true archived depiction w/o filters. David said in Ps 139:14, “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it.” I got a holy hunch David wasn’t merely referring to his outward appearance rather he praised God for the inner complexity of his being! Senior Pastor Tim of New Hope Church said, “People are blessed and highly edited.” He hit the nail on the head! We don’t have to edited what God authored! I Peter 3:3-4, “Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” So the next profile pic or selfie you snap today; choose no filters and let your inner beauty consume your outer.
