Day 18 of Lent, Tuesday, March 25, 2014

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars that you have established;

what are human beings that you are mindful of them,

    mortals that you care for them? 
Yet you have made them a little lower than God,
    and crowned them with glory and honor.
                                                                                            Psalm 8:3-5 (NRSV)

Technology (photoshop) has allowed us to step up the game of making idols of certain types of body images.

It is no wonder that people are insecure with how they look.  It used to be that a very small percentage of women had the body type of models.  Now we can see that not even the models themselves can attain to the pictures we see in magazines.

Each person is a gift in their diversity that we should celebrate.  As we continue in Lent, maybe it would be good to pay a compliment to someone you know.  If you have children who are still living at home, it would be especially good for you to share with them that they are wonderfully made!
