"Don't Judge a book by it's cover"

Sometimes I feel like a book on a shelf.
Standing alone, I am all by myself.

People walk by to just pick me up and used me

Or just throw me down and hit or abuse me.

Their cares are my cover, or eye-catching title.

My contents and pages to them are not vital,

They couldn't care less, if I'm torn deep inside.

Just stroll right by with a strut or a stride
I want to just scream to let it all out.

I wish they could see what I'm really about.
I wouldn't care who is dumb or who's smart.

I would open to each with all my heart.

Why is our world so hung up on appearances? Why do we insist on judging people by their "covers" and never bother to find out what they're really about?

Why do we raise our noses, when we pass by someone who dressed wrong? Why do we ignore someone's answer to a question, because of the way he/she talks? Why do we pretend not to see the guy with the glasses and the pocket calculator? Why are we so insecure about ourselves that we have to make an outcast of anyone who is different?

In 1 Samuel 16:7 says that God does not judge by outward appearances, he looks at the heart. Why can't we learn to do the same thing?

It seems so ridiculous that people will shun some guy, because he is "too tall", "too skinny", "too short" or "not muscular enough, but it happens a lot. And girls are discarded because they're "too flat", "too tall", "too chubby", and "too skinny".

This kind of judgment happens at school , at church, at work and in other places. It influences our decisions on who gets to join clubs, who will be a class president, or who gets the promotion. But it gets really bad when we start looking for people to date or even to marry.

There are tons of women who can get operations, starve themselves, get their hair dyed, and so on. Good looking women aren't that hard to find! But it can be very difficult to find a woman who truly has a heart for God. You cannot go out and buy one of those. If you pass up a girl, because she does not fit your taste. Then you may end up the loser.

Women also do this tool if we are passing guys off, just because they do not work out enough or because they cannot gain weight or because they have a crazy looking haircut. Then we're not only being shallow and superficial, but we may be missing out on someone great.

I'm tired of seeing it happened. I am tired of catching myself doing it, and I am tired of having others do it to me. If appearances are what we value in others, then we might as well give up on human beings and spend out time playing with toys! If we only love at surface level well always have a loneliness inside, because well never learn to connect with others on a deeper level.

I think God did intend for us to enjoy and admire beauty and to do the best we can with what we have, but a face and body can only go so far. When you start getting to know other people and seeing beyond their looks, that is what is really beautiful.

Who cares about the beautiful wrapping paper and ribbon around a present? Some of the best present I've seen were wrapped in newspaper and given by loving friend!

I'm not just talking about the way we judge others. Learning to love also means learning to accept ourselves just as we are. To value our "contents" as well as our "cover" and work to be beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside.

If you feel frustrated because you don't feel like you are pretty enough or handsome enough. I hope you can begin to realized that when you get older most people value who you are more. After all the person inside, is the person God loves and he judges our lives by the book, not by the cover.

~"In Life many of us have done fighting in every way to survive, heard every painful truth, been in every heartbreaking scene and felt every dreadful feeling. We thought going through it will then make us realized that we have to stop the fight, to atleast save a little of ourselves. But you know whats funny? It's when it seems that we are so much tired of it, but still we can't just quit no matter how hard it is and we continue hoping that one day..well be able to find someone who could love us, not just "right" but "real"~
