There is this lady who stays in the village and she tells me her story which I will be sharing in the next three episodes. This lady I am sharing her story worked as a domestic worker and she used common taxi as transportation to commute to work daily. In the transport to work, she had other ladies who were also domestic workers who travelled with her and they will talk about television soap opera that played the previous night every day and she did not have a television.
When the other ladies were narrating, sharing and demonstrating their experiences of the soap opera, she will sit quietly and listen wishing she had access to television. One day she decided to discuss the issue with her husband and she was very sad and the husband felt her pain but they did not have money to buy television. The husband indicated that television needed arial, and connection and they did not have so much money as they were struggling to just feed their children.
This became a topic of every night until the husband came with a suggestion that they must buy either television after some time buy the arial or digital dish then subscribe for connection. The wife was so happy with the suggestion and agreed with the idea. Then the husband said we should go and shop for cheap televisions and the wife disagreed and said no we should first but the arial. The husband was confused why should they start with with the arial and the wife laughed and said the arial will be hanged outside the house and everyone will see that they have a television. 1 Peter 3:3-4
Whose adorning let it not be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on apparel; but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible apparel of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. This story indicates how much we want to show others that we belong and we rather look at our external beauty and not care about our internal beauty and Peter says we must clothe the hidden man of the heart which is a great price in God’s sight. I wonder who am I adorning and who are you adorning?
Lots of love see you on the next chapter continuation of the story
