Qualified or Disqualified?

I've noticed a trend on Instagram for the past few weeks where people will post this picture:

& the people who like it are judge whether they're "qualified" or not. I'm assuming if you are "qualified" you are considered good looking but if your "disqualified" you are not.

The way the person lets you know what they think of you is by first finding a picture from your profile that they will use to post on their profile with the caption reading your results, either qualified or disqualified.

It amazes me that people would put themselves through this torture and not only that but someone else thinks they have the right to judge what beauty is. God created us each individually. He formed us and knitted us together while we were in our mother's womb. We are "fearfully and wonderfully made." (Psalm 139:13-14)

To disqualify someone, we are suggesting God's work isn't wonderful and we are disqualifying our Creator.

How dare we think we have the right to judge God's handiwork!

While we may not see the beauty in everyone we need to understand that "charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain..." (Proverbs 31:30a) but TRUE beauty emanates from a person who boldly and unabashedly knows who they are in CHRIST!!

Therefore, beloved, do not disqualify God's work.

Let's stop this "trend" before it goes too far than it already has. Many people already suffer enough with body image due to media, why have our peers add to the issues?

Be the change, beloved!!
