I thought the video below was fascinating. And as I watched the women come out looking prettier to others than to themselves, I began to wonder how God sees us. How did Jesus see the woman at the well? How did He see Mary as she washed His feet with her tears and dried them with her fair? How did He see the woman taken in adultery? How did He see Mary when she mistook Him for the gardener near the tomb?
God loves us so intimately and knows everything about us and knows exactly how beautiful we are. The closer we draw to Him, the more we become the beautiful creation He made.
What would a sketch of you look like if the person describing you to the artist was Jesus or His mother Mary?
