Appearance Isn’t Everything

By: Susan Bea Good

Would you trust this man?…it depends. He could pick up my trash at 5 AM…I’d be OK with that.

Earlier this year, this scary looking fellow was arrested for criminal sexual conduct at the Day Spa where he worked…as a masseuse!

Am I judging this man based on his outward appearance?…Yes I am!…If only it was always this easy to spot a “bad” man.

It takes more than a glance at the outward appearance to really know someone.

I’m intrigued at still photos, especially of the people I know. I find they rarely capture the true character of the person. Few people are “photogenic”…beautiful for the lens. Most beauty is exuded through expressions of kindness, which can’t easily be captured through a simple photograph.

Physical beauty is only skin deep…and while nice to have, it’s quite unecessary for accomplishing really good things in this life. Compassion, forgiveness, generosity…these are traits that make one  truly beautiful.

“Let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” (I Peter 3:4/ESV)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
