The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months.
By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they were not afraid of the king's edict.
Hebrews 11:23 ESV
He was bringing up Hadassah, that is Esther, the daughter of his uncle, for she had neither father nor mother. The young woman had a beautiful figure and was lovely to look at, and when her father and her mother died, Mordecai took her as his own daughter.
Esther 2:7 ESV
For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.
Isaiah 53:2 ESV
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV
We are naturally drawn to those whom we find attractive. We can find ourselves initially repelled by those who are physically marred or extremely unattractive. We tend to like ourselves better, and feel better about ourselves when we “look good.”
Moses was saved because he was a beautiful baby. His parents saw him and were compelled to hide him (the Egyptians demanded that all the Hebrew baby boys be killed). Would they have hesitated if he had not been so attractive? Would Pharaoh’s daughter have wanted him if he had not been so appealing?
Esther was made queen because she had a lovely figure and a lovely face. She was more than just a beauty queen, of course, but there is no way she would have even made it to the palace had she not been gorgeous.
Nobody, when writing of Jesus, ever mentions anything about Him being handsome or good-looking. From Isaiah’s prophecy we understand that there was nothing about his face or body that would draw our eyes.
Moses and Esther were both very physically attractive, at least for a portion of their lives. Jesus was never physically attractive. Yet all of them used their bodies to bring glory to God. This is what our bodies are for.
Consider the purposes God may have for making our faces and forms the way He did.
Regardless of how you look today, ask God how you can glorify Him with your body.
