Genesis 1:26-31, 2:18-25, Matthew 22:23-33
Azariah explores how we often find it difficult to accept our God-given beauty. The message of God's love and desire for us is so often overridden by painful voices of the past. In this talk we are encouraged to hear God's voice of love through the voice of the lover to his beloved. Could the garden in the love poem be a new beginning? Could we look in the mirror and see beauty staring back?
