Tourist Misses Beauty of Alps by Looking at Herself in a Mirror

[IN LOVE WITH A MIRROR] A group of TOURISTS WAS TRAVELING through the mountains in Switzerland. At one high point they could see magnificent snow-capped peaks and look into the deep blue of the Alpine lakes below. The view was stunning, absolutely awe-inspiring.

After the visitors stood for a long time in silence, amazed at the wonder of God’s creation, the guide noticed that one woman in the party seemed to have no eye at all for the breathtaking grandeur. Instead, she was constantly looking into a mirror, checking her hair and powdering her nose. All she could think about was her own appearance.

We were created to glorify God. Yet, since man’s fall into sin, we’ve had a craving to glorify ourselves.

From a sermon by Dennis Davidson, Service To Fellow Christians, 11/5/2009
