Today was my day to rest with little to no self-imposed expectations of productivity. And so that meant guilt-free daydreaming. The thing that stood out to me most as I sought to rest in Christ was the never-ending allure of beauty. I can across a short song of someone singing acapella and I was immediately enchanted by the smooth melodies emanating from her voice. It was just a 45 second clip, but I probably played that clip about 25 to 30 times without exaggeration. And it occurred to me that her voice was even more beautiful the 30th time than the 1st time. In that moment I realized that true beauty doesn’t get old. It lasts and continues to draw attention and captivate the mind.
I think this is not entirely unlike God. God is the most supremely beautiful being or entity in known existence. Not only is his wisdom endless, but his beauty runs infinitely deep. And so it will not be possible to fully search, know, and appreciate his beauty and thus in God’s wisdom we will spend an eternity growing in our understanding of just how beautiful he is.
