Suit and Tie or Shorts and a Tee

I love 1 Samuel 16:7. In the second half of this verse, God says to Samuel:

“the Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

The verse supports a little ditty that I made up myself:

Suit and tie,
or shorts and a tee,
God welcomes you,
and so do we.

Here’s what we’re aiming for: all kinds of people, dressed in all kinds of ways, coming to worship God. What we wear is not important. If being comfortable means dressing up for one person, and dressing down for another, so be it. The important thing is that the body of Christ gathers for worship.
