Beautiful in God's eyes
So important to control the tongue We are judged by what we say The Bible emphasizes that if we desire to see good days, we had better keep our tongues from evil. (Psa 34:11-13 NIV)  Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. {12} Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, {13} keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. We will have to give an account of the words we utter on Judgment Day.

How to have beautiful feet

Beautiful in God's eyes
We have beautiful feet when we go where we have been sent to go. Feet that bring good news (Isa 52:7 NIV)  How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!" The apostle Paul relates this Old Testament verse directly to evangelism of the lost. (Rom 10:13-15 NIV)  for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." {14} How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? {15} And how can they preach unless they are…

How to have beautiful ears

Beautiful in God's eyes
Ears that heed instruction (Prov 23:12 NIV)  Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge. (Jer 6:10 NIV)  To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the LORD is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it. The Bible associates stubbornness with people who have ears but refuse to hear. Jesus frequently completes His teaching with the phrase “he who has ears, let him hear.” Yes it is possible to have ears but not wanting to hear, not wanting to heed instructions either from God or from others. When we read the Bible, do we just read and choose what we want to believe in or do we heed…

Beautiful in God's eyes
Hands that possess God’s authority (Mat 9:18 NIV)  While he was saying this, a ruler came and knelt before him and said, "My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live." (Acts 28:8 NIV)  His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him. Our hands can do the works of God with the authority of God. When Jesus, even Paul, laid his hands on the sick, they were healed. The hands are a symbol of God’s authority as can be seen in the case of Moses. (Deu 34:10-12 KJV)  And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the…

Have a head of joy (Psa 23:5 NIV)  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. (Heb 1:9 NIV)  You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy." The Bible uses the symbolism of a head anointed with oil with a head of joy. A beautiful person is a joyous person. Have you met someone who is good-looking but does not attract you because that person has a sad countenance? There are many reasons for a Christian to rejoice. A Christian can rejoice because God has promised to meet his every need. John 16:24 (NIV) Until now you have not asked…

Seriousness of controlling our eyes (Mat 5:29 NIV)  If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. Jesus emphasized that we can be drawn into sin by our eyes. And the sins of the eyes can be so serious that we need to take drastic actions. He even used a hyperbole of gouging our eyes out to avoid sin. Avoiding lustful glances (Mat 5:28 NIV)  But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (2 Pet 2:14 NIV)  With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the…
