Everyone talks about flaws and what is perfect or supposed to be perfect. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking on this and well, this is my 2 cents when it comes to physical or beauty flaws.
Majority of the perception about flaws has to do with the physical appearance…that is beauty, what we find attractive.
When I hear flaws or when I’m asked about what I would like to change about me, I remember always thinking that in rightful proportion to my face, I have a big nose. Then I would have loved to do something about it if I could. Now, I’ve come to an understanding that every feature of mine makes me Diana.
We have become too accustomed to the world and its standards and somehow have forgotten that God made us in His image. God is perfect. Genesis 1:27 makes us to understand that we are created like God and I want to assume that as a Christian, you actually believe this.
When we say we are flawed or that someone else is, are we not implying that not only isn’t God perfect but also He made a mistake? I know God doesn’t make mistakes so why would one think God made his precious ones with a mistake.
Maybe it will help more when we check the dictionary meaning of flaw – a mistake in something that means that it is not correct or does not work correctly OR a crack or fault in something that makes it less attractive or valuable.
Finally, by whose standard are we flawed?
Let the conversation begin (if any).
