Did you know that leaves aren’t really green? They only seem that way. Each leaf contains chlorophyll–the green color that captures light and turns it into food for the tree. It’s this green that hides the leaf’s true color. In the autumn, trees produce less chlorophyll, the green fades, and so the leaves show their true colors– blazing reds, yellows, golds!
The leaves were always those brilliant colors– we just couldn’t see them.
And the Bible says you can’t see all you really are either.
But one day, when God mends his broken world once and for all, you’ll be all he made you to be– and then your true colors will come shining through.
“All creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.”
ROMANS 8:19 (NLT)
