I love Veggie Tales.
Greater wisdom has never been found in a kids show.
In this complicated world the purest and simplest truths can often be lost in the muck and mire, thankfully some foliage on a countertop has come forward with the beautiful reality.
Big Idea’s most recent release, Sweetpea Beauty, was especially convicting. The other day when a rhubarb looked at the screen and told me that, “Since God made us, it’s His definition of beauty that should matter.” I believed her, I totally believed her.
As you might have gathered, thoughts about singleness and contentment have been occupying my mind recently. It’s so tempting to think that, because we don’t attract physical love and attraction, we are unlovable. Nothing could be further from the truth.
“God shows his love for us that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8 ESV). That same God formed us in His own image (Genesis 1:27) and, let me tell you, the likeness of an Almighty God is a beautiful thing.
My friend, the LORD loves you so very much. And I say that to encourage you as much as myself.
