We needn’t carry all the shame
Or find a place to put the blame
Poor choices and mistakes
Are what He came from us to take
If we won’t learn to grow through pain
His gift to us remains in vain

Webster defines “vain” as: having no real value. Vanity is a term we use to describe self-centeredness. If we are the focus of our lives, if our pleasure is what we are living for, where is the value? This not only applies to the eternal things but even today is without real meaning. The more of God that we possess and the less of us we promote, the more peace and true joy we experience.
