TODAY IS YOU LOOK GOOD FRIDAY
This expression arrived before me on yesterday when I saw one of my elder friends Mrs. Janice Barbary. She said to me “Susie you look good.” My reply “I feel good.” In all sincerity, I felt as good as I looked. Just several hours before hand, I had received some splendid news and I was overjoyed in my spirit as well as my physical being. “Dear friends, I know that your spiritual life is going well. I pray that you also may enjoy good health. And I pray that everything else may go well with you.” (3 John 2). In verse 3 John goes on to say that believers living faithful to the truth brings him joy. Please get this! When we are faithful to God which produces truth we LOOK GOOD on the outside, and we feel good on the inside which has the potenial to transfer that same hope and joy to others.
As I stood face to face with Mrs. Barbary (heart-to-heart as common as we first met over twenty-years ago) I thought to myself, this woman hasn’t aged one bit in twenty years. I then went on to tell her how beautiful and ageless she was. She smiled as always and said “Susie, your too much, considering I’m having some dental work done, and I’m not feeling like my usual self.” My response, “YOU STILL LOOK GOOD.” and very much so she did inside and out.
See regardless of Mrs. Barbary dental discomfort she remained LOOK GOOD on the outside, and if she hadn’t shared with me the difference I wouldn’t have ever known. Considering she embraced me as she always had, and the glow from her physical- being radiated her faithful spiritual journey, which spoken through her and transferred to me.
As I reflect on those many wonderful, spiritual moments with Mrs. Barbary, I can honestly say she has always accepted me with her own hope for a better me, regardless of my lifestyle and daunting brashness. I now understand very well, she saw things in me that I didn’t see in myself (one day I would LOOK GOOD inside and out). To God is the glory for the blessed faithful hope that his people extend to unbelievers in their time of despair.
My friends, YOU LOOK GOOD can sometimes become polluted, and exaggerated by the world. However when you LOOK GOOD inside, and out for your faith in God this brings God the glory and joy to others.
Thanks Mrs. Janice Barbary.
