This world is a beauty pageant and we are being tested. But God is not testing us in order to find out something about us. God is testing us in order that we might find out something about Him and us. We are “but beasts” and He makes us Beauty-full in time. You cannot make yourself beautiful. You can only be beautiful. If you think you make yourself beautiful, that “you” is an unbearable, ugly, damned and fading illusion. If you think God makes you beautiful, you are indestructible, eternal, and radiate the Glory of God—it is the gift of the knowledge of who it is that you truly are.
