Hats or no hats? God isn’t giving us a specific rule about that, but rather to be aware of our own practices, what they mean, and they impression they give to others.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 11:2-16

ESV Text: 1 Corinthians 11:2-16


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 11
2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 400:
Take My Life and Let It Be

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Take my life and let it be 
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee; 
Take my moments and my days, 
Let them flow in ceaseless praise. 

2. Take my hands and let them move 
At the impulse of Thy love; 
Take my feet and let them be 
Swift and beautiful for Thee. 

3. Take my voice and let me sing 
Always, only, for my King; 
Take my lips and let them be 
Filled with messages from Thee. 

4. Take my silver and my gold, 
Not a mite would I withhold; 
Take my intellect and use 
Every power as Thou shalt choose. 

5. Take my will and make it Thine, 
It shall be no longer mine; 
Take my heart, it is Thine own, 
It shall be Thy royal throne. 

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour 
At Thy feet its treasure-store; 
Take myself, and I will be 
Ever, only, all, for Thee.
