Who Needs A Makeover?
How many of us wake up feeling depressed over our looks, and are mostly concerned with what others would think about us? I, too am guilty of such sometimes. The bible teaches us that since God made us like Him, He doesn’t require us to be any different for Him to love us. While we may experience disapproval from different people, their opinions don’t really count. The important thing is that you look good for the Lord. Be good and follow Him and His ways, and you don’t have to worry about anything else. The people around you don’t have the power to grant you eternal life and happiness. They are just the same as us. So let us not have peer pressure or be pressured to do things that we will regret later, just for the sake of popularity and acceptance by a group of people. While we may accept the fact that we don’t fit by their standards, we shouldn’t be affected by that group of people, for we are one and the same in God’s eyes.
Jesus Himself was tricked by the lawmakers in His time. They asked Jesus if they should offer their money to God or to the emperor. Jesus simply asked them to look at their money and made them see whose face was on the coins. The answer was offer to the emperor what is his, and offer to God what is His. There’s man’s standards, but then again, there’s God’s.
