I was drawn to this Fox News item (7/26/2019), Sports Illustrated model Haley Kalil says ‘sorry mom’ after dancing to tune containing ‘bad word’. The model said “sorry mom”. She was “sorry” because a “bad word” was in a song she danced to.
I wondered, What is her faith background? How did she arrive to her decision, and then apologize – to her mom? Does her faith matter to her?
I searched, and found https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haley_Kalil – but there was no indication of faith of any kind. Her husband, Matt Kalil, attended a Catholic school near where I went to high school. He went to Servite High School in Anaheim, California, “where he played for the Servite Friars high school football team. Again there was no indication of any faith of his.
Maybe they have a deep faith. Maybe they don’t. But nothing registers….
Made me wonder: how “public” about our faith are we in this land of the free? Does anything “register” with other people — about our faith?
Do people that meet me – soon come to know of my faith in Christ as my Savior? Do I care whether they know or not? Does it matter?
On what do you base your beliefs? Haley Kalil chose to dance to the bad word song, and apologized to her mom (but did it anyway and had the video published). Not really sorry, she continued on her way as before.
“Sorry” doesn’t cut it with God. He asks us to actually repent. There is an eternity of diffence. What choices are you making?
The Bible says we will spend eternity in one place:
Does it matter to you where you will spend your eternity? You ready to lose it all? Jesus said “I am The Way“. Do you value Heaven enought to make sure you are following Him with all you got? If not, you’ve made your choice… to go the other way.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and with all your soul and with all your strength [your entire being].
“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require from you, but to fear [and worship] the Lord your God [with awe-filled reverence and profound respect], to walk [that is, to live each and every day] in all His ways and to love Him, and to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul [your choices, your thoughts, your whole being]
you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and all your soul [your entire being].
And he [Jesus] replied, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
