Our world is full of preferences; it is noticeable in the things we love. People prefer a slim body to a fat one, light skin to dark skin, riches to poverty, being young to being old, and the list goes on. The world tells us even without saying it that these options are ideal and should be sought after.
So we see people spending millions to look younger. The fitness industry boast of billions of dollars generated because people want to lose weight, and we hear of people stealing and looting money so that they can be wealthy.
Many others who cannot make or afford the change begin to feel inadequate and inferior bringing about a loss of self-esteem and self-worth.
God’s Love is Unconditional
I want to introduce you to someone who loves you just the way you are; His name is Jesus. He does not reject anyone based on their body size, the amount of money in their bank account or how beautiful, ugly, or old they may be.
Even when we deliberately make poor choices that affect our health, His love for us remains unchanged. He tells us that we are wonderfully and beautifully made (Psalm 139:14) even when we see ourselves differently. He calls us the apple of His eyes and His love for us does not cost a dime!
We cannot ignore the fact that there exist among us those who are beautiful, tall, rich, light skinned and slim. Does God love them any less? Certainly not.
In His eyes, we are all beautiful. But the good news is that no one can boast of being loved by Him because they possess one of these “favored” qualities.
So, when the world puts you in a “class”, remember there is one who loves you just the way you are. There is no beauty, wealth, intelligence, or educational requirement for a place in His presence.
Won’t you say yes to the one who does not require you to be a certain way in order to show you His love? He is waiting to express His unconditional love to you.
