Philippians 4:8 kjv
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
This time of year as the trees start to change color it is so easy to see the beauty the Lord has put around us. I love to paint but try as I might my brush cannot compare to the touch of the master’s hand. No one can because His touch is beyond this world. Just as when He touches the trees of fall with beauty the Lord touches our lives with all the wonderful things spoken of in this verse. How amazing our Lord is; with His touch He makes everything beautiful, from the creation around us to the new creation we become through Him.
Heavenly Father, remind me to stop and enjoy Your beauty around me. But more than that teach me to grasp the goodness, honesty, and virtue of those around me who are filled with Your wonderful Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name. Amen
