The Real Slim Shady

Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life. -William Shakespeare

It was the year 2002 and my parents said that because my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit then I couldn’t get an earring.  I heard them but didn’t listen.  I smuggled myself to the mall to pierce only the left ear (that was the style back then), inserted a fake diamond and I felt like the Real Slim Shady.  Later I was homeless for exactly the eight hours that I left it in.  Whether or not the earring was wrong, that day I learned that some things I do to honor God, and some things I do to honor man—and by virtue of this I will always honor God. 

Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor (Proverbs 18:12, NLT).
