Good Morning March 15

I have written before about God being a God of beauty, and where we see something beautiful we can rejoice in God’s gift. But thinking further about this, it is important to foster that which is beautiful. This world gives us so much that is harsh, ugly, mean, exploitive, and explosive. Whether in entertainment, games, action toys for kids, or numerous other places, the very opposite of God’s beauty is promoted. I understand that we live in a rough world, and we can’t have our heads in the sand, but where it is up to us in where we go, what we buy, gifts we give, what we watch or listen to, we can strengthen that which is good and beautiful. Paul wrote, “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….And the God of peace will be with you.”(Philippians 4:8)
