A few days before Jesus was to die on the Cross, he described those in power who would sentence him to death:
Everything they do is for show, to make a good public image.
They are like well-cared-for tombs in a cemetery, beautiful on the outside but on the inside filled with foul-smelling decay and death.
God sees the inside, and declares those beautiful who love him with all their heart and soul and mind and strength, and love their neighbor as themselves.
Coffee/tea thought: Lord, I want to be beautiful in your sight on the inside, through the power of your Spirit working within me. Amen
Ref: Matt. 23.27-28; Matt. 22.34-40.
