Lovely Nature
And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share in his divine nature and escape the world's corruption cause by human desires. --- 2 Peter 1:4

It is disappointing to have an unpleasant encounter with people who look kind or charming, but their personalities leave much to be desired. The outer man only facades what the inner man is deeply lacking. That is - a lovely nature. What does it take to have a lovely nature? Good question. Here is the great answer: To have a lovely nature, we must be like God. To be like God, we must act like God. He created us to live that way, and we should because it is the root of His nature within us! Our attitude, and the things we say and do reveal to others whether we are just appealing in our appearance or if we possess the genuine and loving nature of our Creator. Do your character traits identify you to be a child of God or a child of the world? Be honest and hold yourself accountable to God so that your personality and spirit will reflect the lovely nature of our Heavenly Father. Amen.
