But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
I have gourd on my forehead the sticks out like a golf ball, and am bald and fat yet I know I am beautiful. You know why?
It is because I have the love of Jesus in my heart.
When we have the love of Jesus in our heart we exude a beauty inside, one that is filled with love and compassion as well as joy. When we have this we radiate out to the world like sunshine on a cloudy day. People are drawn to me like bees to sweet nectar. When I was a teacher all the students wanted in my class. When I go to the super market or a restaurant I always get special attention. It is because I have love. I care about people and do things to bring joy into their lives.
“Though we search the world over for the beautiful, we find it within or we find it not." Ralph Waldo Emerson
We have all met the beautiful people haven’t we? They dress in the nicest clothes go to the best restaurants and have people falling all over themselves to get near them.
Because the have lust in their hearts and secretly dream of having sex with the beautiful people.
But when the sex is over, then what?
You are left with an empty feeling like something is missing.
That something is of course love.
Do you want to be the centre of attention just so someone can use you? Then, when they are finished throw you away like yesterdays garbage?
"Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical." Sophia Loren
Look at Mother Teresa. Wasn’t she one of the most beautiful people in the world? Yet, she was no babes was she?
Work on developing a heart like Jesus. Then, you too will be one of the beautiful people.
How has Jesus made you into a beautiful man or woman?
Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy.Anne Frank
Prayer: Please Jehovah Hosanna (God our maker) please create in me a beautiful heart like Your precious son. I ask in His beautiful name Jesus Christ my hero. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day.
