Find the Beauty
When you do not see the beauty in others consider this:
"He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him." Isaiah 53:2
Speaking of Jesus in the above Isaiah prophecy it declares that those who had the opportunity to see Jesus saw no beauty.
The reverse could also be true. When God looks at us I find it unimaginable that He could possibly be attracted to us. From His vantage point there is nothing desirable about us. Nothing attractive. But, by His grace we become something desirable.
At the root of the Greek word translated as grace is beauty. We become a desirable thing when Jesus, through grace, makes us beautiful in God's eyes.
Those who cannot find the beauty in others simply have no beauty in themselves to give. I'll take grace every single time.
Thank you Lord for giving me grace.
