Rhinestone Cross

Posted by on April 23, 2015 at 5:15 PM

I purchased a pair of Rhinestone earrings in the shape of a cross last year. I always loved wearing them but stopped temporarily because as women, we change our styles so often. I recently picked them back up and wore them. When taking them off, I laid them down and walked off then happened to glance at them once more. A strange feeling came over me. I purchased rhinestone cross earrings. Let me be clear...they are earrings in the shape of the vice used in my savior's death sentence. I thought how strange that over 2000 years later, ignoring the pain, torment, and sacrifice, I was wearing it as a fashion piece. It saddened me and I wondered what my savior must have thought about that. Of course, I meant no harm and never thought about it because I look at the cross as a symbol of my belief yet in some way, a rhinestone cross seems sacrireligious and distasteful. It's strange how Jesus was murdered on the cross, bore my sins, and those of every other human being yet we can so easily forget it. Maybe it's something that we need to think about. I definitely will.
