Want To Look Better?

Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.

Psalm 147:1

How many millions of dollars do we spend every year on products that are advertised to make us look more attractive?  How many millions of dollars are spent every year advertising products that claim to help us look better?  There are creams and pastes and natural concoctions that all claim to make us look better or younger or healthier.  How many hours a week do we spend working on our looks?  If a person could find a way to help people look better, that person would be very rich.

I have a plan for helping you to look better and it doesn’t cost anything.  Just praise the Lord.  And maybe sing praises to Him.  That’s all.  Does that sound too simple to be true?  Not according to this verse.

“Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.”  “Comely” is simply a old word that means “beautiful” or “handsome.”

Praising the Lord and singing praises to Him is actually going to help us look better.  Have you ever seen someone who is always angry or bitter?  They just don’t ever look happy.  They are not usually “comely.”  On the other hand, a person who is thankful and praising the Lord for His goodness is going to have the glow of peace, joy and happiness all over their face.

Constantly praising the Lord is going to make you happier and more content.  That peace and joy that is on the inside is going to come out.  It is going to make you look better!  So, forget all of the things that the world would have you try; in order to look better, just start praising the Lord!
