God Don't Like Ugly...

I hear the statement often used, "God don't like ugly..." and usually the person saying it is ugly! They may be ugly in what they say to others, critical about everyone else but themselves, have an ugly disposition, or ugly outlook on life.

The latest God don't like ugly statement I heard had something to do with a woman who recently lost her husband. Now the person who talked about this incident, said that the woman was very disrespectful of her mother and therefore because of that her live-in boyfriend of 20 plus years died. I personally thought that if God was going to throw curses to this grieving woman, he would be more concerned about her living arrangements then disagreements between the woman and her mother. I thought of the scripture about honoring one's parents, but no where does it say that one will lose a loved one, instead the Bible says, "For God said, 'Honor your father and mother' and 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death." Matthew 15:4. Another scripture states, Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Exodus 20:12. There is a reward for honoring one's parents and that is added days to one's life. Anyway, so I am listening to this person rant about how she treated her mother and I thought, "This person doesn't know God, because if she did she would be quiet." You see, at times people are very quick to pass judgment, "Do not judge, or you too will be judged." Matthew 7. Another scripture states, "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:37. Critics are also very quick to provide an explanation for one's calamities like Job's friends did in the Bible to him. "He must have done something...it was because of your sin the reason why...if you had done...then maybe God wouldn't..." Be careful talking this way, because you never know what God may have in store for you!

Yes, God don't like ugly, so what ugly have you done lately?
