Why the hair?

Hair for me is one of those things I think I could do without. Well, at least on me, I don’t think I want to see everyone with out hair. I still wish that I had a bold head, it would be so much easier. Less maintenance, no shampoo to pack, no comb or brush to pack, never worrying about if it is messy up their.

But then I read Proverbs 16:31 and think maybe I want a little hair on my head to see if I can have that grey crown.

So why do so many people want to dye their hair? If grey hair is a crown of glory gained by a righteous life, why not wear it with honor? I’ve said that if I ever become bald I will shave it off, no comb overs for me, but my wife tells me that ‘there is no chance that I will be bald’ I have too thick of hair. So I suppose I will stop saying I hope and begin saying “If my hair ever turns gray, I am not going to dye it. It is a badge of honor”
