My wife loves flowers of all sorts. And she sees beauty where I see little or nothing.
One day she planted a seedling in a really ugly blue plastic coffee can.
I asked her why that ugly can?
She explained: “When the flower is strong enough, I’ll re-plant it in a place that shows off its real beauty.”
Likewise, Paul suggested that our present sufferings aren’t even worthy to compare to the glory we’ll have in Him. (Romans 8:18)
If my life is ugly today, He’s promised that one day, in Him, it will be worth real beauty.
