A different type of beauty

~Tuesday Thoughts~

In today's world it is hard to rip yourself away from the opinion that being beautiful means having silky hair, piercing or sparkling eyes, an extra thin body with long legs, etc.

The Bible, however, says that that's not where beauty cones from.

  "Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." 

Proverbs 31:30 (NIV)

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight."
1 Peter 3:3-4 (NIV)

How about you? Have you concentrated on the world's version of beautiful for a while? Can you ask God to change that?
