True Beauty: 1 Samuel 16:7…for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.
The beauty to which God looks is not external; it is the beauty of love, it’s the beauty of mercy, it’s the beauty of patience and kindness and gentleness and joy and self-control. You can be big or little, tall or short, fair or dark. You can have any kind of body and be absolutely gorgeous morally — as you choose to live “I’m third”: God first, others second and yourself third. Serving others in love and kindness is what allows Beauty to see past the outward appearance of the Beast (favorite Disney movie?), and for others to see past yourself and to the beauty and glory of your creator. Our job isn’t to be the sun, it’s to reflect the glory of THE son. ☀️✝️
