I delivered a PA System to a house in Laguna Hills, CA today. Those folks really know how to make houses! They had a gorgeous stone pool in the back next to a massive gas fire ring. Their spacious living room had high ceilings an opening into the kitchen and a smaller TV room. The stone work was beautiful. Everything was pristine.
But isn’t that superficial beauty? It’s not the kind of beauty that fosters love or relationships. It doesn’t offer any added sense of security. It doesn’t even promote imagination or thought. It just looks great.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with superficial beauty. Unless it distracts us from seeing true beauty. Does all the unimportant yet nice stuff distract us from what is important?
