“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” – Philippians 4:8
Life can be an unpleasant or an exquisite experience, depending on your attitude towards it. When you are confronted with the cruelty of life, it is all too easy to allow it to affect your nature and character.
It requires spiritual sensitivity to consistently appreciate the beauty of life. To appreciate God as the Creator of all that is beautiful and noble, look around you. You will discover Him in unexpected places: in the smile of a friend, the innocence of a child, even a subtle act of love. In numerous ways, you will begin to see the wonder and beauty of life.
I bring you humble thanks, O Savior, that through the presence of Your Spirit I can appreciate the beauty and grandeur of life. Amen
