Your incredible Ashley. I know I comment on virtually every post. I just can't seem to help myself. I shall have to read this several more times to get the full effect I think. <3

Most of us wouldn't. I hope I would.

Here's what the Bible says about how Jesus looked: "He grew up before him like a tender shoot,and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him." Isaiah 53:2
Just as you say here, He also went against the religion of His day, upset the religious leaders, and hung around the unattractive outcasts, the same as He would do now.
Our big, fancy, glittery cities and entertainment and stuff and possessions do a sadly great job of taking our attention away from Him.
The best in life that I've learned the most from are the little, quiet "unimportant" things and moments or young children (especially you girls), or "common", basic people.
I would also hope that I would do everything he asked of me. Still trying to. That's all He wants is our honest hearts and our ugliness.
