Every once in a while a magazine will feature a cover picture of a celebrity without make-up or without having photoshopped their picture. Sometimes a celebrity will do this on their own Instagram page.
I think most of would say George Clooney is a handsome man. But what does he look like without makeup or photoshopping? Say, a picture taken when he’s on vacation and simply enjoying a cigar.
No, that’s not Clooney. I have no idea what he’d look like under those circumstances. Did I have you for even a moment, though?
Mike Cosper wrote an article a few years ago he titled, “The Satanic Ideology of Photoshop.” Over the top? Not really.
His point is that Satan’s strategy in the Garden was to assault Adam and Eve’s contentment. The results were disastrous.
No one wants to live life unsatisfied, constantly discovering that the next thing we thought would fill the void of satisfaction turns out not to work.
We continue in our second week on learning contentment this weekend as we ask again why contentment is so important for our lives.
I hope to see you. Bring a friend.
