Does God make ugly?

Ugly.

What a funny word.

U-G-L-Y.

If I were the creator of words I would never make a word like ugly.  The word itself looks funny.  The more I say it the funnier it looks and sounds .

Ugly, ugly, ugly.  LOL

Does God make ugly?  Depends on what we’re talking about.  Ugly appearance? Yes.  Ugly actions? No.

I was reading a blatantly honest article yesterday from a teenager who was angry at God and questioning why God had made him ugly.  The wise answer he was given was, “Instead of asking your question—“Why am I not more beautiful on the outside?” ask this question: “How can I cooperate with God to help me become more beautiful on the inside?”

He went on to say that, “If being good-looking is important to God, then Jesus Christ would have been a real hunk, right? But he wasn’t. In Isaiah 53:2, Jesus was described this way:

In our eyes there was no attractiveness at all, nothing to make us want him.

You see, Jesus wasn’t good looking, yet He rocked the world because he walked with God.”

Jesus was outwardly ugly?  There’s a thought to digest.  Do you see Him that way?  I don’t.  I can’t.  When I picture Jesus, it doesn’t matter to me at all what He looked like on the outside.  The man sacrificed His life for mine.  He died on a cross to pay the penalty for my sin.  He was determined to save me when I didn’t even know I needed saving.

Jesus shows us that outward appearance does not determine true beauty, but outward actions do.  And outward actions are determined by inward beliefs.  If Jesus lives in your heart by faith then your heart is beautiful.  You are beautiful….doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside.

I saw a commercial last night for the Chrysler 300.  Now, I have always loved the appearance of this car.  If any car were what I would consider beautiful it would be the Chrysler 300.   If a car were to truly ‘suit’ a person, the Chrysler 300 would suit me.  The slogan caught my attention, “Show where you’re going without forgetting where you’ve been.”  I like that slogan.  It has a sense of class tinged with a whole lot of humility.  It doesn’t matter what something looks like on the outside, when those two things are combined together that makes the ugly become beautiful.

Jesus was class tinged with a whole lot of humility.  That made him beautiful!

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
