I’ve heard people say “God don’t make ugly”. Which is supposed to be a comfort to those who feel bad about themselves. I’ve also heard “God don’t like ugly”. Which is supposed to be an admonishment for people who are behaving in an ugly. Some of us out here feel ugly no matter what. Both of those phrases can feel either like a lie or a condemnation. It is not difficult to believe that God did not make me ugly. It is easy to believe that Satan has perverted God’s creation (like h e always does). Of course God doesn’t “make” anything ugly. Satan makes things ugly. Then he tells us that God doesn’t like us with his lies. It’s just not true folks, God loves those that are ugly, and likes them too. Otherwise, what was the point of Jesus’ life and death? Jesus himself said that only the sick need a doctor, those that are will do not need a doctor. Please Lord, help me to move past the ugly that I perceive (real or not) and to find the beauty that is there.
