You are Beautiful

Thomas is excited because today is “mismatch” day at school. He is wearing one of his crocs, and one of his flip-flops. I never thought he’d like anything as much as his crocs.

Until he got his flip flops. He thinks they are the coolest thing ever. He has hasn’t told me why, but I think it’s because he thinks it’s cool he gets to see his feet all day long.

It’s like being barefoot, except not.

We don’t often think of feet as cool or neat, or really something worth talking about about.

But Paul listen to what Paul says today in Romans 10: 14-15

How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?  And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

Paul says today that when are our feet are obedient and take the gospel to others, they are beautiful. They are beautiful for they are being used for a beautiful purpose.

To tell others about the grace of God.

There is not a part of us, of our story, of our lives, of all that we are, that God can’t use for beauty. There’s not a part of us, that when we submit it to God and use it for His purpose and plan that isn’t beautiful.

Today, you are beautiful. Today, through His grace and for His purpose, you a beautiful.

Today, live in His grace and for His purpose. And through that, know how beautiful you are.
