Things are not always what they appear. If you watched the most recent X-Men movie, Apocalypse you met two characters who embody that idea: Night Crawler and Angel.
Both of these characters were thrown together into a cage to battle each other. Night Crawler was called a demon because he had blue skin, sharp teeth, and that long spiked tail. He was pitted against Angel who was graced with chiseled features and beautiful white wings. However, Night Crawler throughout the film was known more for his prayers and acts of faith. Angel on the other hand turned to drinking and eventually sided with Apocalypse whose goal was the bring about the end of the world. These two men inherited the opposite physical features from the real people they were inside.
Isn’t that like life? Many of the kindest good-natured people are sometimes the broken and unlovely on the outside. While some of strong good-looking perfect specimens have the meanest self-destructive attitudes. I hope we all have eyes to see the real person under the skin. It does take more time and courage to see with a different set of eyes.
