The value of things depends not on the things themselves but on whether or not people value them.

Lobster (like oysters, foie gras, polenta and sushi) used to be food for peasants and prisoners – actually, lobster was used as fertiliser and fish bait. It was enterprising 19th century American railway operators passing it off to wealthy inland travellers as an exotic food who, at least in part, made it valuable.

God does not find people who are beautiful and then decide to love them. Rather, he makes the objects of his love beautiful. (Garry J Williams)

Christ loved the church to make her … radiant …, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, … holy and blameless. (Eph 5:25-27)

The Church has no beauty but what the Bridegroom gives her; he does not find, but makes her, lovely. (CS Lewis)

She carries a pearl in perfect condition
What once was hurt, what once was friction, what left a mark, no longer stings because Grace makes beauty out of ugly things. Grace finds beauty in everything. (U2)

Love to the loveless shown, That they might lovely be. (Samuel Crossman)

He loves not because of what we are, but because of what he is: he is love. (Leon Morris)
