Jealousy, beauty and God

Beauty and jealousy are oil and water words—they aren’t a good match—but in God they come together.

God’s beauty is seen in his relational devotion—in his love. Even in our humanity we see beauty in the people who love us well. The wrinkles of a caring grandmother are winsome etchings of love to the eyes of her grandchildren; and the aging body of a devoted wife will still bring a unique beauty to her husband’s heart from their many shared years of life. Our Lord who, though he is not seen, can still be known and loved. He offers us a true beauty once the eyes of our hearts are open . . . the beauty of hearts united in love.
