“It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.’”
– Luke 19:46
People want change. But they’re confused as to what needsto be changed. This confusion is the reason why modern-day people are dissatisfied.
They’re dissatisfied with their face. They’re dissatisfied with their complexion. They’re dissatisfied with their waistline. They’re dissatisfied with their height (ahem).
They’re dissatisfied with their relationships. They’re dissatisfied with their friends. They’re dissatisfied with their boyfriend or girlfriend. They’re dissatisfied with their school or job. They’re dissatisfied with their gender.
The result? People are robbed of real joy! They’re contaminated with the “out-there-icitis.” They look for the beauty out there. Some do the absurd: they have a facelift, nose-lift, tummy-tuck, botox, bariatric surgery, even a sex change! They pay costly amounts for a major makeover. They don’t know that God is the Ultimate Beauty Secret.
You are the Temple of God. Let Him give you an internal extreme makeover. Because God doesn’t look at your appearance but your heart. Then inner beauty grows from the inside out! Obet Cabrillas (firstname.lastname@example.org)
[box type=”shadow” ]Reflection: What does love look like? It has hands to help others. It has feet to hasten to the poor and the needy. It has eyes to see the misery and want. It has ears to hear the sigh and the sorrows of men. (St. Augustine)[/box]
Jesus, let me be a beautiful temple of Your presence. Amen.
