I recently read a line that caught my attention. One person said of another, "God looks good on you."
The context made it clear that it wasn't meant to say that God looked on them in a favorable way, as in God's attitude or spirit toward them, but that when people looked on their life, it made God look good.
I'm not sure I've heard it put quite that way.
But I like it.
God should look good on us to others. God looked good on Jesus. I've always marveled at how Jesus could proclaim absolute truth without compromise to those far from God, and then have those very people invite him to their parties.
But as I wrote in my latest book, The Rise of the Nones, we're not quite pulling off the Jesus thing.Click here to continue reading this post and to view the blog archive.
