Perfect Body

I was thinking the other day about how everyone wants to look perfect. We get braces so our teeth will be straight, people get implants and liposuction, etc. Everyone wants to look, well, perfect. But because we live in a fallen world, none will ever achieve this. It is just a huge waste of money, really. Not saying we shouldn't try to keep ourselves clean and fit, because that is simply being good stewards of our bodies. But so many go beyond this and waste their money on something that will never entirely happen.

I was contemplating this after the dentist kept making a big deal about my crooked teeth. I really don't care! It doesn't affect my daily life. Something like LASIK for Kevin I could see, as it would change his life and cost less money in the long run. But purely cosmetic stuff is really a big waste.
