Most of us spend half the day obsessing over our image but how much thought do we give to our character? Are you an outer beauty and inner ugly.

The Bible's Take On Beauty

“Favour is deceitful, beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31: 30

“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel. But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.” 1 Peter 3:34

Definition Of Beauty

Beauty, according to www.dictionary.reference.com, may be defined as “the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, colour, sound etc.), a meaningful design or patter, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).”

Beauty Today

What is beauty in today’s society but a multi-billion dollar industry? Think about it, how far can you get in your day without seeing or hearing ads about new beauty products or seeing articles about the latest beauty tips and secrets?

By the time you reach retirement you will have spent more than half your money improving the way you look and twice as much time worrying about how you look. So much focus goes into the way we look but how much time is spent on thinking about the way we are. We should be just as concerned about our inner beauty as we are with our outer beauty. Most of us don’t even give a second thought about our personalities much less the things that need to change or the person we can become. Imagine what the world would be like if each of us cared about the type of person that we are even half as much as we cared about our image.

What do you think would happen if every day you thought about who you are as much you think about what to wear and how to comb your hair? What would happen if every day you fixed up your personality just like you fix up your hair? Proverbs 31: 30 states that beauty is vain but a woman that fears the Lord is of a good price. For all the effort we put in our image we have so little control over our lives. Anything is possible, in an instant we can lose the beauty that we spent our whole lives trying to obtain, this is why beauty is vain. After the outer beauty is gone, what do you have left? Can you say you are proud of who you are? Can you say that you are just as beautiful inside?
