Eye of the Beholder

Abraham Lincoln

A mother once came to President Lincoln to ask him to spare the life of her son who had been sentenced to death. After listening to her pleading, Lincoln issued a pardon. As she left her meeting with the president, she exclaimed to the man who accompanied her, “I knew it was a lie!”

“What do you refer to?” the man asked.

She replied, “Why, they told me he was an ugly-looking man, but he is the handsomest man I ever saw in my life!”

Those who aren’t attracted to Jesus simply haven’t comprehended the fact that he has offered them a pardon from eternal death. Once they understand this, Jesus becomes the most handsome man they know!

“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:2.
