John 17:1 “After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so he can give glory back to you.” (emphasis added).

Let Out!

John 7:38 (NIV)Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.

Source vs. Outlet

1 Cor.12:4 There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all… 11 It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.”

You and I did not choose or have any control over the things we were born with. Why then should anyone be arrogant because of good looks? What if you wake up one day and you are no longer good looking? Read the rest of this entry
