we've all had that happen. but I was going to visit some friends I usually only see once a year and obviously I wanted to look good. cause, like, I'm human in case you hadn't noticed.
and it's not like I was heartbroken or anything, but I was kinda disappointed. and I just had this thought-
do I need a flawless haircut to serve Jesus? do I need to be pleased with my appearance to love on other people? [spoiler alert: I have never needed any of these things to do any of these things] like, whoa. change of perspective from the world's view of things. and
I know I know I know
this is so much easier said than done
but can we please stop being so concerned with outward appearance?! I'm so tired of it. can we start complimenting people for things we see that are more than skin deep? is it cause we don't take the time to see past the outward that we only compliment people for how they look? let's see people. let's love people. let's love Jesus. and let that overflow out of our hearts and our lives.
so that maybe next time someone sees you they won't see your makeup or your new haircut,
but maybe they'll see Jesus.
