Week 3 | Don’t Sidestep the Unattractive
The third lesson of wisdom from the Cross is this: Never despise the humble appearance of God’s plan. Make no mistake—the Cross was not at first gilded with gold to adorn our steeples and necklines. It was first a place of disgrace. It was the symbol of death. It was brutal and ugly, horrid and shameful. But it was God’s way! From the foundation of the world, He ordained that His priceless treasure be dressed in very plain clothes. If you’re ever tempted to avoid the unattractive path God has planned, turn to Jesus on the Cross.
