Making life beautiful

June 6th, 2017

National Making Life Beautiful Day is celebrated annually on June 11th. The day is set aside to honor persons who attempt to make life beautiful for others. Making Life Beautiful Day was submitted by Apriori Beauty (a company that develops and sells anti-aging products) to the National Day Calendar and accepted by the Registrar in April of 2015. The date June 11th was chosen because on June 11, 2009, the company began a project focused on helping men and women look and feel beautiful through an internal and external approach to beauty. While profit is always a factor in projects that companies launch, the premise of making life beautiful for others also can result in generous and compassionate acts of goodwill.

Making Life Beautiful Day is meant to be observed by doing tangible good deeds and providing moral support and encouragement to others. By doing these and similar actions, we can create beauty, along with building and strengthening relationships and community. One beautiful act can be continuously paid forward, resulting in an atmosphere of beauty for many places and spaces.

Beauty and glory

One of the Hebrew words for beauty also means “glory.” As the people of God, we are called to reflect God’s glory on earth. We want others to see the glory or beauty of God in the way that we live our lives. Both the Old and New Testaments provide numerous examples of the beautiful and glorious ways that we are called to live our lives. Most of those ways involve helping to improve and influence others’ lives. Christians have been given the beautiful gift of salvation. Not only has God given believers this incredible gift through Jesus the Christ but also God has prepared good works for us to do to help shine the beauty and glory of salvation on others through those loving and compassion acts. It doesn’t end there: As a result, our lives also become more beautiful when we give God all the glory!

Question of the day: In what ways can you make life beautiful for others?
Focal Scriptures: Isaiah 58:6-8; Luke 12:15-21; Ephesians 2:8-10
