In a world that measures worth by things like appearance, wealth and intelligence, it's crucial to remember what truly counts in God's eyes. The Bible reminds us in 1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV), "The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
God's perception of beauty is profoundly different from the worldly standards we're accustomed to. In His sight, every individual is beautiful, not because of their achievements or appearance, but because of their intrinsic worth as His creation. God cherishes the kindness you show, the love you give, and most importantly, the condition of your heart.
Remember that you are beautiful in the eyes of Father God. This God given perspective should liberate us from self-doubt and empower us to live in the fullness of God's love, affirming our worth and those around us.
Find your worth and beauty in God, nothing else.
Father, thank You that You love me so much. Amen.
Do an internet search about the love of God, you’ll be so encouraged.
