“You look mahvelous” was the tag line of Billy Crystal’s Fernando character on SNL. What made that bit funny, is what often lends humor, it’s partially true: we do long to look mahvelous.
I mean honestly, who doesn’t want to look mahvelous I do not wear makeup everyday and l often arrive at my destination with wet hair. But just because I don’t spend an inordinate amount of time trying to beautify on a daily basis, the truth is I want to look mahvelous just as much as Fernando or anybody else.
But did you know that the Bible has a prescription for looking mahvelous?
Psalm 34:5 says, “Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed” (ESV).
I got my toes done this week, and I bought new eyeliner. I got a cute new jean jacket too. But the best thing I can do to look radiant is to gaze at my Savior. Nothing else is required — just beholding Him. May I do so daily. If I can reflect an infinitesimal fraction of His glory, I’ll look mahvelous, darling.
And so will you!
Have a fabulous, even mahvelous, week!
