1035th -- Real Beauty


There are many moments when we put so much emphasis on the physical 
aspects of life and yet we don't think or focus on the spiritual aspects 
of life. We look at what is seen and we think the importance of the 
physical aspects are so much more deserving of our attention, but I 
believe the opposite is true. The unseen, the spiritual realm, our 
heavenly home deserves our attention more than what we can physically see 
with our eyes. This life no matter how long it may seem to us right now 
is so temporary when compared to the eternity of heaven or hell. The 
unseen world is the place where all of us will spend our eternity. This 
life is just a temporary blip, a vapor, a drop of water in the ocean of 
eternity. This life is fleeting, it is passing us by at an exponential 
rate where years go by that seem like only days or weeks. It is for this 
reason that we should all get serious about the unseen real world that is 
awaiting each of us. We can't ignore, not think about or be ignorant 
about where we will spend our eternity. We must think soberly on our 
eternal home.

Many of us can attest to the fact that we take pride in our physical 
earthly homes; we make sure they are clean, presentable and furnished in a 
manner that is both to our liking and appealing in the eyes of others. We 
take such care to make sure everything coordinates together, matches 
nicely and looks altogether lovely, but when it comes to our spiritual 
being, many of us know truthfully and inwardly that it is deeply lacking. 
If we pray for more than a few minutes a week, we think we are pleasing 
God and doing Him a favor. In truth, we are denying ourselves the 
pleasures and joy of being in His presence. We don't want to give God our 
time, we don't want to fellowship in spirit and in truth, we don't feel 
the need to seek our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the King of Kings 
and Lord of lords. But I believe it is time for us to wake up and realize 
the truth. The truth is our life is meaningless without the Lord. The 
most beautifully furnished home is worth nothing if there is no peace in 
the household. 

The Lord is able to bring that peace into the lives of all who call upon 
His name in truth. See your need for The Savior. See that your eternity 
is coming upon you quicker than you had previously thought or imagined. 
Do not focus on the physical aspects, do not worry about your looks, your 
height, your stature. Look with spiritual eyes, see what you haven't seen 
or focused on before. Live for eternity and not for the temporary 
pleasures of this world. Use your life in a way that will ripple through 
eternity and will make God proud of you. Life is fleeting, it passes by 
all too quickly so let us use it to our benefit. Let us make God proud 
and do all that He commands us. For myself, I know I want to hear those 
words, “Well done My good and faithful servant.” How about you?

I hope this message ministers to your heart to not be so overtaken with 
what you see with your physical eyes, but rather focus more on seeing with 
spiritual eyes. It will be to your benefit in the end.


When a first-time father cuddled his newborn son, he immediately noticed 
the baby's ears conspicuously standing out from his head. He expressed his 
concern to the nurse that some children might taunt his child, calling him 
names like “Dumbo.” A doctor examined the baby and reassured the new dad 
that his son was healthy - the ears presented only a minor cosmetic problem.

But the nervous father persisted. He wondered if the child might suffer 
psychological effects of ridicule, or if they should consider plastic surgery.

The nurse assured him that it was really no problem, and he should just 
wait to see if the boy grows into his ears.

The father finally felt more optimistic about his child, but now he 
worried about his wife's reaction to those large, protruding ears. She had 
delivered by cesarean section, and had not yet seen the child.

“She doesn't take things as easily as I do,” he said to the nurse.

By this time, the new mother was settled in the recovery room and ready to 
meet her new baby. The nurse went along with the dad to lend some support 
in case this inexperienced mother became upset about her baby's large ears.

The infant was swaddled in a receiving blanket with his head covered for 
the short trip through the chilly air-conditioned corridor. The baby was 
placed in his mother's arms, who eased the blanket back so that she could 
gaze upon her child for the first time.

She took one look at her baby's face and looked to her husband and gasped, 
“Oh, Honey! Look! He has your ears!”

No problem with Mom. She married those ears...and she loves the man to 
whom they are attached.

The poet Kahlil Gibran said, “Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light 
in the heart.” It's hard to see the ears when you're looking into the light.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

2 Corinthians 6:2 “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the 
day of salvation...” 

Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him 
while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man 
his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy 
upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” 

Proverbs 2:1-6 “My son, if thou wilt receive My words, and hide My 
commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and 
apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, 
and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, 
and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the 
fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth 
wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” 

Matthew 6:19-21 Jesus says,
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon 
earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through 
and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither 
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor 
steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” 

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
