As we go along the path of life we all realise that physical beauty is not everything. You might like a person afar off, but when you get close, and see some things, you may change your mind. We have all been through this before.
If only we would discern people the way the bible says we should, we would have more quality relationships in our lives (2 Corinthians 5: 16), “no ye no man after the flesh”. No man means no man. Sometimes people choose to do wrong, and this is not based on their appearance. I.e. how they look.
Have you ever sized someone up because of the way they look? We have to be very careful. This is one reason many have aborted God ordained relationships in their lives. Only the Lord knows the heart of a person.
Sometimes when l see books written about how to choose a marriage partner, l get concerned. Many books will tell you “ are you physically attracted to them? Is the person beautiful to you?
Well the reality of life is that beauty is relative. The most important question when it comes to choosing a life partner should be “Is this Gods will for my life”? Everything else will fall into place.
I would say that looking at beauty alone is very unwise. Only the Lord knows a person’s heart, what trials you will face along the journey of life and whether or not they will be compatible with you in the future.
So let’s be spiritual people. Respond to that person that has been trying to be your friend quiet and meek, but not necessary beautiful in your sight!
Sacrifice is a step beyond convenience. Bill Johnson
