“But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose head is shaved. For if a woman does not cover her head, let her also have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head” (1 Corinthians 11:5-6).
Perhaps for the first time in two thousand years, these verses make more sense. Men, be men and women, be women. Just that. Be whom the Lord created you to be. We live in a world that is constantly arguing over our own identity. Be whom the Lord has made you to be and become what the Lord is making you to be. Live into your identity as a child of God and trust what he has created.
Lord, the world is constantly mixing things up and telling me things that make no sense. Help me to keep simple things simple and live into the life to which You have called me. Guide me according to Your goodness that I may now and always walk with You in the way You have established. Let me not be confused by this world’s sinful insanity which does nothing but destroy what You have made.
Lord Jesus, You have come into this world to lead those who will follow into a life that sees the light of truth. Help me follow You that I would see through the obfuscation of this age and know that You are preparing me for eternity. Guide me O Lord in the way of truth that I may now and always follow You. You have the words of eternal life. Where else can we go in this mixed up world? Amen.
