We're Not 'Too Fat' for Pictures
Yet hopefully, as I hurdle toward middle age, I will have gained a life and an increasingly beautiful soul that is being conformed to the image of Jesus (Rom. 8:29) even if I have gained some weight. After all, when it is all said and done, those who know me will remember me for who I am and how I loved, not how much I weighed.
Here I am not advocating some form of Gnosticism where we ignore our physical health in favor of purely spiritual wellbeing. Everything is interconnected, but as we know, we should not over-emphasize the physical at the expense of everything else either. So why don't you join me in resolving to not rob our friends and loved ones of fond memories by refusing to have our pictures taken? We'll never have these moments again.
