Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 #23 Attractive…

Are you attractive? Do you make your core values attractive to others around you? Listen to these words from the New Testament, “So that in every way, they make the teachings about God our Savior attractive.”  Titus 2:10. We are a culture obsessed with beauty. Superstardom is measured by skin tone and eye spacing and physique more than intelligence and depth. Attractiveness is another quality completely. It is an inner quality that shines through our personality, our speech, our thoughts, and our body language. It may or may not include what is called beauty.

Attractive…

If you point beyond yourself to what you believe in – if you point to the one you follow – if attractiveness is found in the One who has and is changing your life and purpose – then you are giving attractiveness a whole new meaning. It involves all the senses, in other words, your whole person. We are not just to be summed up based on surface analysis. We are much more than what others see. We can also be understood, by our speech, compassion, caring, listening, commitments, and other qualities which attract other people to what we stand for and who we follow.

Attractive…

Dennis Rodman, the NBA star (not someone who you might think of being a standard bearer of beauty), created a different appeal to the game of basketball. He may have been one of the hardest working basketball players I remember from the great Chicago Bulls championship days. He once said, “I’m trying to find new ways to make this game more attractive.” He was at the time outrageous and difficult but also imaginative and hard working. He sought to make “the game” more attractive to fans. We can look to our gifts and talents and make our spiritual leader more attractive to those who think faith is boring and dull. Faith makes a difference but too many of us make it seem dull. Point to the one who creates an inner spark in you – a light that will live on beyond your life – make Him attractive – then you wont worry so much about yourself.
