When you look into a pool of water, or a mirror, what do you see or do to help make you adorable in the eyes of others who are looking back at you?
I read a Purple rays Blog Post titled: Adorable Little Souls, and contained the above image.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate the words Adorable, Heart, and Soul to the ancient proverbs and beliefs of judgement of what will be seen within us to judge our life to be considered adorable in the eyes of our Maker.
Definition of Adorable (Google)
inspiring great affection; delightful; charming.
As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. (Proverb 27:19)
What’s My Point?
In ancient times the heart was considered what is in our contemporary times to be a person’s soul.
Both Israelites and Egyptians believed when a person died their hearts or souls went to place to be ‘weighed’ for judgement
Egyptian Beliefs – At death, a person’s heart was measured on a balance scale and if the weight of the heart was out of n balance with thr object placed on the other scale, it would not be allowed to move on to an afterlife.
Israelite beliefs –The balance and true scales are Yahweh’s concern; all the weights in the bag are his affair. (Proverb 16:11)
My point is to compare what will be measured and considered an adorable sight in the eyes of our Maker when we stand before Him in our final judgement of our actions and accomplishments during our lifetimes..
In My Opinion
The next time we look in a mirror, whether to shave or put on makeup to make us appear more ‘adorable” in the eyes of what others will see and judge our appearance.
Perhaps we might want to consider the above proverb what will be seen in our hearts and soul in the eyes of those who look back at us and our Maker, same as the above feature image depiction.

Is what is in our hearts feel heavier than what the objects being balanced and measured for principals of truth and justice Egyptians put on the other scale?
Will practicing Wisdom and Love in our lives help to add ot lessen weight of our hearts and souls?
If after reading this post, which reaction occurred in your heart according to the following proverb?
Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. (Proverb 12:25)
