Daily D – Proverbs 27:19
As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. (NIV)
Just as water mirrors your face, so your face mirrors your heart. (MSG)
The relative loveliness of a face is gauged how?
A woman in her eighth decade of life has an altogether lovely face. When you see her, you see peace. You see purpose. You see compassion. More than anything, you see Jesus.
A friend who is pushing his way toward seventy has a softness making him winsome and pleasant to all he meets. He smiles first. Even when tightly focused on a significant problem, the corners of his mouth turn upward.
A young woman of my acquaintance through social media is on her way to her thirties. It’s not her youthful manner, the tone of her skin, her hair without any tinge of gray that makes her so pleasant to behold. Instead, it is her gentle manner as she faithfully declares truth with such winsomeness you cannot imagine anyone disagreeing with her.
Who does this verse bring to mind for you?
My beloved computer has crashed once this morning. It is now sending signals it may well do so again. Therefore, to keep my countenance from becoming unnecessarily stern, I will wrap up this reflection.
I will work on the condition of my heart so that the condition of my face reflects the goodness of God’s grace and kindness.
Our Father, give me the kind of heart that makes my face ever more pleasant to behold as I reflect more and more of you. Amen.

1 Kings 21:25, 26 (There was never anyone like Ahab, who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the Lord, urged on by Jezebel his wife. He behaved in the vilest manner by going after idols, like the Amorites the Lord drove out before Israel.)
Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
2 Chronicles 15:1, 2 The Spirit of God came on Azariah son of Oded. He went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.”
