I have a pretty healthy body image but I’ve never been a big fan of my legs. They’re kind of chunky compared to the rest of my body with purple veins laced over them like streets on a road map. But these legs have carried me around California where I have explored Disneyland and Universal Studios. They have skied down mountains, trekked through the ancient temples of Cambodia, wandered the streets of Penang, climbed the gorges of Karijini and strolled along the golden sands of Cable Beach. So I’m very grateful for these legs. The Bible says that God created us in a wonderful way. We should be grateful for our bodies and the amazing things they can do. We should also be more concerned how we look on the inside. 1 Peter 3:3-4 says, Don’t depend on things like fancy hairdos or gold jewelry or expensive clothes to make you look beautiful. Be beautiful in your heart.
Challenge: Do you have a body part that you love to hate? Write a list of things it helps you do and thank God for it?
How do you think you can be more beautiful on the inside?
