Have you ever noticed that on some pictures of Abraham Lincoln there is a wart on the side of his check and others there are not?
I’ve read as one artist was preparing to paint his portrait, he began to have Lincoln move around. President Lincoln began to smile because he saw what the artist was doing. He was trying to get the president in a position where the wart wouldn’t show.
Finally the artist was satisfied, and he asked, “President Lincoln, how do you want me to paint you?” Lincoln replied, “Paint me just as I am, wart and all!”
God’s Word is like a mirror and that’s why people don’t like reading it. The Word of God reveals all our imperfections, it shows us who we really are!
