Mullet Theology

I was recently doing some traveling, and on one of my flights I noticed a gentleman one row up and across the aisle from me that was sporting an interesting hairstyle (pictured left).

Where I’m from, this particular cut is called a mullet. I’ve also heard it referred to as a Kentucky Waterfall, Tennessee Mudflap, Canadian Passport, Achy Breaky Bad Mistakey, and the list goes on.

As I continued to stare at this man’s hair while he played with his ponytail, I was both intrigued and inspired by his courage. Suddenly I was reminded of a passage of Scripture that describes what God considers to be more important than anything that has to do with our appearance.

1 Samuel 16:7 says, “…The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

I’m not inferring that God doesn’t care what we look like, or what we wear, or don’t wear. But I am saying that what’s most important to him is a person’s heart. When we love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:28-30), everything else takes care of itself.

Then things such as hairstyles begin to be viewed for what they really are—preferences.
