Amazing Interiors

I was flipping through Netflix this week, looking for something to watch. A new show, entitled "Amazing Interiors" caught my attention. The show takes you inside homes that look normal on the outside, but on the inside are amazing. An example is the home of Stewart McVicar's. It looks like an average, Chicago, middle-class home on the outside. But go inside and you'll encounter the "#1 Chicago Cubs cave in the world." McVicar's has transformed his basement into "Club 400." He named it "Club 400" after the 400 sign on the center field wall of Wrigley Field. The clubhouse has everything from an organ that was used at Wrigley field, a life-size Anthony Rizzo bobblehead and a TV above the urinal so no one misses a pitch. The clubhouse also has over 500 baseballs from games, over 100 bats and over 50 jerseys. Another house they visit, looks normal on the outside, but on the inside it has been turned into a life-sized doll house. There is also a house that looks like an average house on the outside, but inside it has been transformed into a skateboard park. As I was watching the show, I was reminded about how important it is to take care of our inner self. Here are some verses that came to mind.

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16

But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7

...that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, Ephesians 3:16

We spend lots of time taking care of our exterior, don't we? Makeup. Working out. Beauty supplies. Plastic surgery. Botox. Tanning beds. New clothes. New shoes. Diets. Hair cuts and new hair styles. Nothing wrong with taking care of our outside. I believe we should look out best. But even more important is taking care of our inner person. You can look great on the outside, while being a wreck on the inside. We are good at hiding or temporarily masking what&#x
