Five Minute Word- Beauty

The word for today is beauty. Many things can be beautiful. The world says people of beauty need to be thin, wearing the right clothes, being confident, having the right shape, and for women, the right make up.

However, God doesn’t look at our appearance, but he looks at the heart.

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 16:7b NIV

I want to see beauty like God does.

I believe God sees beauty in the widow who is grieving her husband, or the homeless man on the street who was trying to makes ends meet. He sees the beauty of two women speaking in sign language next to me whilst I eat. He sees the beauty of my persecuted brothers and sisters around the world.

Beauty is seen in everyone, no matter their size or shape.

Why?

Because we are all made in the image of God. And, God is the creator of beauty.

Father God, may I see beauty in everyone you created because you are beautiful and we are made in your image. Help me to look at people’s hearts instead of their appearances. Amen.
