So who is beautiful?
Is it the flawless face in a magazine?
Is it a new born baby?
Is it a person you see at work or on the train or bus every day?
There are as many different answers as there are people in the world.
The Bible has this to say about beauty: 1 Peter 3: 3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
When you look in the mirror what do you see? Do you see: wrinkles, spots, blemishes, pimples, hairs where you don’t want them, freckles, some part of you that is too big or too small or too crooked? How long do you spend changing the way you look?
Did you know that you are probably the only person who will ever see all of those things?
Did you also know that no matter how much or how long you look in the mirror or at your own photo there’s one thing you will never see!!
You’ll never see yourself through someone else’s eyes!
Everybody has regular places that they go but do you ever notice how many people smile just because they see you or exchange a greeting with you?
It’s most likely that all of those people think you are beautiful in one way or another.
Put down your phones, papers, and books and look around as you travel.
How many beautiful people do you see regularly and how many see you?
Make their day by saying something nice about them.
Everybody needs to know that they are beautiful – so tell them.
Let’s make the world more beautiful one smile at a time.
Share this with as many people as you like.
Email me and share a photo if you like. If I get enough (or any) I will add an album to this post.
Let your smile make the world warm and beautiful.

圣经有关于美的说法：3 不要单注重外表的装饰，就如鬈头发、戴金饰、穿华丽衣服； 4 却要在里面存着温柔安静的心灵，作不能毁坏的装饰，这在 神面前是极宝贵的。
每个人都需要知道他们是美丽的 – 所以告诉他们。
