“If you see something beautiful in someone, speak it.”
For whatever reason, the norm for many women is to look and not speak. A woman may pass by another woman with beautiful glowing chocolate skin or a head full of curly hair and think “Wow! She’s so beautiful,” and walk past her with barley a smile. Do you realize how much power you possess with your words alone? Enough to brighten someone else’s day in the midst of their storm.
As faith walkers, we are to allow the love of Christ to shine through us at all times. Being a Christian involves ministering to others beyond toting a bible or attending services once a week. It needs to be represented in our daily walk outside the four walls of the church. That smile of yours, compliment, or helping hand may be the only form of Christ a person may see.
So, whether it’s a compliment, a small gesture, or even a smile, don’t let the thought pass you by. I started to make it my point to slide in DMs, comment sections, or the scariest of them all, in person, to tell others about the beautiful things I see in them. It only takes a few seconds out of your day to express yourself to someone else. You may just save a life and better yet, a soul.
