Lost Innocence

 Lost Innocence

I was in line at Starbucks earlier this week. There was a little girls in front of me in line with her mom. She looked like she was about four or five years old. She was wearing a pink summer dress and a big grin on her face as she gazed at all the different pastries in the display case. Then her eyes fell on the CDs for sale by the register. Her smiled faded as she stared in what looked like a mix of confusion and fascination at the album cover closest to her. The cover displayed a woman laying sensually in a black sparkly "outfit" that resembled underwear. As I watched this little girl examining this CD I couldn't help but think that part of her innocence had just been stolen. 
 
  From the time a girl enters the world, she is bombarded with the world's ideas of beauty.  She has to have the right body type, be a certain weight, have the right clothes...the list goes on and on. It is impossible to be satisfied with oneself in this world obsessed with a materialistic view of beauty. Fortunately, with God all things are possible. We were fearfully and wonderfully made by a perfect Creator that is incapable of creating less than worthy creations. We can only see ourselves for who we truly are when we look at ourselves the way we look at the rest of God's creation. We would never criticize a colorful sunset or a snowy mountain. How much more beautiful are the creations that God chose to die for?
