See True Beauty

As Jesus was leaving the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!” Mark 13:1

What do you take notice of? The disciples saw the beauty of the Temple; Jesus had just spoken to them of the beauty of a widow putting two pennies in the offering plate. (12:41-44) We are too easily impressed by things that don’t matter. Focus on what will last. See Jesus and all he has done. Take notice of the people around you—those to whom Jesus would give life eternally. May you see great beauty today. Let Jesus help you pick out what is worth focusing on.
