Don’t Waste Your Life

“Don’t waste your life trying to look good. Spend your life making God look good. That’s why you were made. And you know the weakest among you, the most ugly, have perhaps, the greatest chance to do that. The rest of you are too good lookin’.
You distract people. But if you’ve got a little hunch in your back, a little pot in your belly and hair’s not doing what you wish it could, you just might be a candidate to get attention for somebody else.”

-John Piper, “Discern What Pleases God: Himself”, New Attitude Conference 2007
