God is not concerned with appearances. The Bible tell us that God looks at people's hearts instead of what's on the outside. Perhaps thats because appearances can be deceiving. Aperson can be beatiful in the worlds eyes, while their heart nurtures pride, deceit, lust, greed or a host of other unlovely traits. By learning to look at people the way God does, from the inside out, we may discover beauty in others and in ourselves.
You created me and put me together. make me wise enough to learn what you have commanded. Psalm 119:37

An "Abundant Life" is not something that we can purchase, althought many try. It comes from recongnizing how much we receive from God each and every day. While some of our abundance may come in the form of possesions, the overflow of an abundant life, ultimately comes from what fills our hearts not our homes and garages. Resting in God's "MORE than ENOUGH" can transform to a desire to acquire into a prayer of Thanksgiving for what we've already been given.
You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvest of grain and new wine. Psalm 4:7 (NTL)
Have a Great Day!!
Don't let the inability to overlook the faults of others be a fault of your own. If you tend to examine other people with a microscope try using a mirror. It will give you a clearer picture.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Hold your relationships tightly, not lightly
God is very delibarate about the relationships He puts us in. The words we say to these people are very important because they speak who we are but people are more likely to se Christ in us through our actions.
You yourselves are the letter we have written in our hearts for everyone to know and read.
2 Cotinthians 3:2
