Sally Field And Dust

While picking up a few items from my local Dollar General store yesterday, I noticed a magazine with a picture of actress Sally Field on the cover. She will be 70 years old on November 6th. Here are some other well-known celebrities who have turned 70 this year.

In the above magazine picture, Ms. Field looks to be around 35 to 40 years of age. This dynamic change has been brought about by various plastic surgery procedures that she has undergone. Even though Ms. Field's outward bodily appearance looks youthful, what about the inside of her body? All of those parts will still be 70 years old on her upcoming birthday. Those parts are daily deteriorating, eventually to the point of death, where Ms. Field's body will return to dust and her eternal spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:1-7 TLB).

We need to realize that we are but dust (Genesis 2:7; Genesis 3:19; cf. Psalm 103:13-16 TLB), and to dust our bodies will return (Ecclesiastes 12:7) — including Ms. Field's body. Thus, we need to accept our bodies as they arewrinkles and all, and rather focus on the condition of our soul. If our soul has many wrinkles caused by sin, we desperately need to have a spiritual Botox treatment — that treatment being the cleansing blood of Jesus (1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5).

Beloved, if we haven't already, let us consider getting that spiritual Botox treatment today (2 Corinthians 6:1-2), before we depart this earthly existence.
