I love my daughter’s innocent words in the picture. What if we took this to heart. That God made us just as he wants us to be.
What if we stopped the comparison game, the envy, the self-critique. What if we stopped always trying to change something about ourselves.
What if we knew God made us beautiful. Just as we are. And relished in that.
What if we let go of fads (who cares about them anyway) and enjoyed our own style, a reflection of who we are.
Beyond that, what if we spent more time caring about who we are over appearance.
The Lord said these powerful words: “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
What do our kids see we care about most? What do we notice in others? Do we compare ourselves out loud or do we reflect contentment with how we look and who we are. Because our kids will mimic us.
Let’s show our kids what it looks like to celebrate the beauty in our friends as well as ourselves. Just as they are. Just as we are.
And above all, let’s show our kids what it looks like to look at the heart as the Lord does and to celebrate THAT in people.
