“…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.” -1 Peter 3:4
Beauty, something often thought of something completely opposite of it’s true meaning. Whenever I personally hear the word ‘beauty’…I am always brought back to my 1st Family Vacation to Walt Disney World! When I seen the beautiful princess belle walking the park grounds greeting all the little children. There she was. True beauty right before my 7 year old eyes. I stood in amazement and awe.
She was dressed in a big sparkly yellow ball gown. With her hair done just perfectly. Her face was a master-piece of elaborate make-up. She had the perfect princess body. All around, she was a true beauty. She glowed with pure happiness, as she politely greeted each young child. A spirit of a great-self confidence oozed from within her. Of course, she was just payed to portray the perfect princess but, it was something else that made it so very realistic.
We are so often told to always remember that beauty comes from within the heart. Which yes it should. Just like the verse we started with today in 1 Peter 3:4. “…be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty…”
Yes, this is true. But, we don’t need to dress sloppy just to for the ‘hidden beauty’ criteria. We as Christian women are supposed to be an example to all the world. We are to be presentable. Honourable, and showing that having Christ with you, is that most incredible thing ever in this crazy world. Which yes it is 🙂
In conclusion today ladies, never be ashamed to wear a fancy dress and get your hair and nails done. God doesn’t look down on you in anger just because you decided to dress up and wear a pair of heels. If that is something that makes you happy, then God is happy too. Live beautifully my dears!
Until Next Time,
