Food For Thought

We had a rainy weekend in Charlotte, and it's starting to feel a lot more like fall than it does summer. It was the perfect opportunity to recover from all the traveling I've been doing, and I took full advantage.

My mom called me three different times yesterday and each time I had to tell her I was just waking up from a nap, no shame. Nina rocked some serious bed head all weekend too, but she didn't seem to mind one bit.
Anyway, at church they've been talking about Images. I spent a lot of time this weekend reflecting on what we define as beautiful, and thinking about how quickly we judge others based on their outward appearance. So I wanted to leave you all with some food for thought, and I'd love to hear your feedback...

If your outward appearance was a direct reflection of your inward beauty, would you like what you saw when you looked in the mirror?
"...The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” -1 Samuel 16:7

nope I wouldn't (sometimes I would be proud, but sometimes not as much). I am a lot of times (not all the time) so worried about what I look like (clothes, shoes, makeup) that I forget to worry about whats on the inside. I can be snarky and rude and should work on those things more than making sure my outfit to go on a motorcycle ride with a ride is put together. LOVED this post!!! :)

LOVE that verse. I need to remember that! I don't always (usually not) like what I see in the mirror.

That is so hard to think about since when I see most people look at themselves (and I am guilty too) flaws are the first things pointed out. We need to let our inner beauty truly radiate!

I have to yes I would like what I see in the mirror in my outer beauty was a direct reflection of my inner beauty. I definitely think that all people are beautiful. I've learned that you can't judge what's beautiful and what's not based on how the media defines it. Otherwise, we'd all need to be a size 0 with the same hair, eye and skin colors.

But at the end of day, I definitely strive to maintain my inner beauty. After all when it comes whether or not I make it through the pearly gates that's what is going to matter and not what I look like! Visiting via The Charlotte Social.
