Can you imagine a butterfly complaining about the color of its wings or the shape of its antennae? Can you imagine a bluebell saying I’d rather be pink than blue? Such thoughts are obviously absurd.
Yet, as human being, the most highly advanced creatures on the planet, we are constantly critical of ourselves instead of celebrating the beauty God has placed within us.
Flowers come in all sizes, shapes, colors, fragrances, and grow in almost every environment. Dogs and horses come in incredible varieties from miniature to gargantuan. Trees are among the most important plants on the planet and come in all types of sizes, and textures.
The list could go on and on. God likes diversity. It’s as simple as that. He didn’t create anything ugly. There is absolutely something beautiful in every living thing. It may be harder to see at first glance in some things than others.
God didn’t make ugly. People did. I have heard of primitive cultures who have no words for “ugly” or “beautiful.” They judge people and things on usefulness, practicality, and necessity. Imagine even a day without the media or your friends commenting on how beautiful or how ugly someone/something happens to be in their opinion.
For true beauty, consider the wonders of nature, and the majesty of God who created it all.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
