The world tell us it’s our hair, make-up, wardrobe, jewelry, and car that make us beautiful. It’s almost impossible not to get wrapped up in this lie. This lie clouds our perception of what beauty means, and before we know it we are too caught up to even realize how far away we are from the truth.
Below our God’s Words to us women…His perception of what real beauty is:
Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on jewelry, or beautiful clothes, or how you wear your hair. Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm of a gentle and quiet spirit that is so precious to God.
(1 Peter 3:3-5)
The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
…make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
(1 Thessalonians 4:11,12)
Sarah, for instance, obeyed her husband Abraham, honoring him as head of the house. And if you do the same, you will be following in her steps like good daughters and doing what is right.
(1 Peter 3:6)
Those who look to Him are radiant, and their faces should never be ashamed.
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the days to come.
For Christ Himself is our way of peace.
