ADORNMENT

An emotion one feels when we worship something or someone is adornment.  Is adornment a positive thing?  In my opinion, it can be or not.  When I think of “adornment”, I only feel this way towards God and Jesus.  However, others can feel adornment towards others.  Adornment is placing others on a pedestal.  One thing I have seen is others adorning or worshipping other human beings.  This may lead to the idolization of one who is a leader.  Before going any further, we will take a look at the definition of adornment.  

Webster Dictionary meaning of Adornment-1.  A thing which adorns, or decorates; an ornament. 2.  the action of adorning something.  Something that adds attractiveness.

Daily Wisdom Words Definition-1.  Worshipping a thing.

I think we can all easily get caught up in worshipping “things”.  We work hard for what we have, and if we are like most people, this is not by choice.  It is hard to think about the really important things in life when your focus is directed on something else 40-50 hours of the week.  However, adorning or worshipping the things in life produced from this time and energy isn’t a positive thing at all.  I don’t know if many of you have heard the saying, “We are born with nothing in this world, and go away with nothing.”  The point I think this quote makes is exactly what I just pointed out.  It is easy to get caught up in material things.

I am no stranger to this.  I spent close to 25 years thinking of the home I had as mine.  I guess looking back on this, in my own way I worshipped this home.  It was my pride, my joy, what I had worked hard to buy myself.  Before I knew it, the recession of 2008 hit, I had severe health issues, and it required everyone in my family to help me pay for this home.  I actually kept this home until my children had both moved out and my daughter married.  However, I had to face the fact that it was so difficult to pay for it that I no longer could.  Also, it wasn’t practical to need that much space any longer.  I simply couldn’t justify it.  I had to move.  

Along with moving, I sold half my belongings and found a place half the size of this house.  I spent one year severely depressed, and almost had a mental breakdown as I had also lost my career.  My point by picking this daily wisdom words is don’t worship and cherish the “things” in your life but cherish your loved ones and God.  Thanks so much for reading about adornment with me today. Have a beautiful and blessed day!!!!!!!  Samantha Leboeuf/Daily Wisdom Words
