Beauty on the Inside
Proverbs 31:30 “Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.”
There is so much emphasis on outer beauty in the magazines and tabloids and pretty much anywhere you look. But so little time or effort is spent on inward beauty. The Bible specifically tells us that outward beauty does not last but those who fear the Lord will be praised greatly. Those who fear the Lord read His word and follow his commands and when they do that they build a beauty that is so deep it can not be lost.
We need to stop focusing so much on the outward appearance and start really focusing on what is really important and that is what we put in us. What is it that we are focusing our time and attention on? Those things affect how we act and treat others. If we are not focusing on building good character and doing the things that God has commanded of us (loving others for instance). Then we are not building our inner beauty that does not fade.
I’ve heard people talk about movie stars that have passed. And what I have heard is not always good. I would hear things like she was absolutely beautiful but she was hard to work with, or she treated people badly. She could cuss like a sailor but she was a rare beauty. They are talking about their outwards appearance but they had nothing good to say about their personalities.
How would you want people to remember you? As the woman with rare outward beauty? Or the woman who treated others with respect and who was selfless and put others first?
