Weekly Verse

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2

As people we're really visual. We see someone and make a snap judgement--even if we have never met the person before! Judgments can be mean and can really lower self esteem... Sometimes it can feel like no one really sees the REAL YOU! People just have a first impression and that's it... Luckily God SEES YOU! 
Unlike people, God isn't worried about what you look like. He cares about YOU. Who you are and what your heart holds. He sees the real YOU-- the best you that you can be--even if the world doesn't see you the same way.


 Jesus loved the people that the world didn't. He saw what was on the INSIDE-- the real person underneath the external appearance! A great example of Jesus loving the unlovable is found in Luke 19:1-10. This is the story of Zacchaeus--a tax collector that everyone hated... except Jesus! He actually reached out to Zacchaeus and LOVED him! Jesus saw what Zacchaeus had on the INSIDE. And best of all, because of Jesus' love, Zacchaeus CHANGED-- for the better!

I think we should take Jesus and an example and try to look past outward appearances... we should try to actually SEE people-- the BEST in them!
When you look to find BEAUTY and GOODNESS in people instead of snap judgements, you may find that you will find the meaning of true beauty! Not only that, but you yourself will have better relationships and embody BEAUTY itself! You shouldn't judge someone based on looks alone... you never know what someone is going through....

Be kind. Try to SEE people-- the real them, the BEST them.
