What is it within man that makes us dissatisfied with the way the Lord made each of us?
Most people are not happy with the way they look so they seek ways that will cause them to feel better about themselves or cause others to accept them.
This is not wrong when it comes to having good grooming habits, but we need to understand true beauty comes from within, not from what we wear or how we look.
When the emphasis is put on the outward appearance we can be ensnared in vanity, rejection, fear, pride and even racial discrimination.
One of the most wonderful things about receiving the Lord is that He wants to deliver us from the outward things that we think we need to feel good about ourselves. When we are in sin we do not feel worthy or acceptable, but through Christ we are.

We know of many people who have said to us that they wish they had not been foolish when they were young as now they must live with the reminder of what they did when they were young. Only a few people have the money to have them removed by laser.
