Jackson Five Friday: Looking Mahvelous

My Friends,

“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!
