Looking beyond our Scars February 26, 2020

Following a vicious dog attack, three-year-old Victoria Wilcher was left with facial scars and an eye patch. At a restaurant in Jackson Mississippi, she was asked to leave because her scars disturbed other patrons. Happily, when the restaurant owners learned of the hurtful incident, they donated $30,000 toward Victoria’s medical bills. The owners looked beyond Victoria’s scars. The Bible informs us, “The Lord does not see as a man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” We often see only the physical, and judge one another on outward appearances. Thankfully, our loving heavenly Father looks beyond unattractiveness or beauty and into our hearts. No matter what we look like, God loves us all the same. He sees us not for what we are, but what we can become. It’s belief, not beauty that counts with God.
