Beauty. It is a subject I am SO passionate about, because our culture wrongly defines it. They define it by what you do. They define it by what you look like in comparison to the celebrities, but how does God, the Father, the Maker of EVERYTHING define beauty?
Proverbs 31:30 is one of my favorite passages that is CONSTANTLY pointing me back to the importance of the inner beauty, the beauty that FLOWS from my heart, not the beauty that I can just put on on the outside. It says, ‘Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.’
Peter reminds the precious women in 1 Peter 3:4, ‘But let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.’ That beauty is a beauty that no amount of age or time can take away. It is a beauty that is lasting, beautiful, precious, gentle, and bears the sweet savor of Christ.
