Yeah, that’s right. You heard me. You right now, reading this blog post are beautiful! You are a thing of beauty. Okay for the guy that’s reading, you are handsome.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Who am I to judge? How can I know what beauty is when I haven’t studied Fine Arts or whatever it is you think would qualify me to say such a thing. But I don’t need I four year degree in looking at pictures/paintings/sculptures to know beauty when I see it. My eyes work (thanks to contacts I’ve got 20/20 vision. And I’ve definitely seen my share of beauty. Thanks to my new job, I get to see the sunrise almost every morning on my drive to work. I’ve seen sunsets and rainbows and even a rainbow in the sunrise
But beyond that. I know you are beautiful because God told me so. My coworker uses the phrase “God don’t like ugly” a lot. But God don’t make ugly either, the Bible tells me so.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well.” Psalm 139:13-14
“All beautiful you are, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” Song of Songs 4:7
“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11(a)
Everyone longs to be told they’re beautiful. Everyone needs to be told. So tell someone today how beautiful God made them!
