Mature Christians Are Like Well Worn Blue Jeans—Aspiring to "Holeyness"

Mature Christians are a lot like blue jeans. Most started out stiff and deeply dyed. As they walked with God they were broken in; they became softer, more conformed to His shape, and their original colors became less pronounced. Eventually, they got thinner and thinner, so that folks saw more and more of God, just as one sees more of the wearer of a threadbare, and ultimately holey, pair of jeans.
