God is more concerned about the people we are becoming rather than our outward appearance. He does not care about the latest fashion trends, that you have the most expensive Louis Vuitton handbag or a tailor-made Armani suit. We cannot take any of these things with us to Heaven.
That scar you may have may be a reminder of a mistake you made in the past, those fine lines are years of wisdom or those rough hands are years of hard work. The trials that we go through are tests from God to sculpt us to become more like Him. Times of triumph are to glorify His name. For we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) to bring glory to God, we are all beautifully crafted in His likeness.
God is the creator of all things. He formed each and every one of us in His image. We are all important to Him. No-one is loved more than another. We are loved above everything else in all of God’s creation. No animal, no plant or precious gem was ever created in his image. We are created in His likeness. He had you in mind from the very beginning of time.
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
