October 12 Word of the Day: Beauty
Our society is very concerned with appearance and being beautiful. But who is to say what is beautiful? Women with straight hair want curly hair, brunettes want to be blonde. The clothing and makeup industries try to make us feel beautiful, but God already knows that we are perfect just as he created us.
Isn’t it nice to know that God accepts us just as we are, flaws and all?
Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. (1Peter 3:3-4, NLT)
True beauty comes from within!
