I completely agree with this statement. Every day I seem to be reminded of just how small the world is and how connected we all are to one another. You and so-and-so went to high school together? Who knew? Additionally, I am consistently surprised by the unique and unexpected ways beauty shows up in other people.
One minute someone is a completely average person next to me in line, the next minute they purchase coffee for a stranger or pay me a kind compliment and my opinion of them is completely changed. Through one action, they switch from unremarkable to notably kind. That’s the beauty we need to see more of. True beauty, which comes from kindness, generosity, love, and joy.
Let’s open our eyes, and ask God to show us more of the beauty that’s all around us.
When have you encountered beauty in someone else unexpectedly?
