“One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.” (Psalm 27:4, ESV)
How often do you think of God as beautiful?
We gravitate to certain aspects of him: his love, his might, his holiness, his grace and many others, no doubt.
But our God is also beautiful. His light makes a sunset appear like a flickering candle. His voice makes Mozart's arias fall flat in adoration. His Word leaves Shakespeare's sonnets speechless.
Our Lord could have been hideous and demanded our worship. Instead, he is beautiful and beckons us to join his family and take on the family resemblance.
One day that beauty will be ours to behold. One day we will lose ourselves in countless ages gazing on a beauty without compare.
For something beautiful today.
