I was at work and had to listen to a woman keep commenting on different photos of Hollywood actresses. Negative comments about these actresses bodies. When she would speak about these women, a new emotion was born in me. It was a mixture of pain and hurt from that woman, and disgust and anger that she was judging these women by their appearance.

I realized that this woman has probably gone through a lot of pain and hurt from this world judging her only on looks. Maybe many terrible men have used and abused her for sex and money, with absolutely no intentions of keeping any kind of relationship once they get tired of getting what they want. Maybe her girlfriends dumped her for in their opinion a better looking friend.

The dark side of her comments is that what the world has protruded on this woman has now come full circle and the very thing that she hates, she is now throwing at these magazines and possibly other people at work, home, or even friends.

"But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:19.

Just imagine if the world judged on character instead of appearance.............
