Society and popular culture has placed more attention on looks than ever before. There are so many different products and services available for women to enhance their physical beauty. From make-up to cosmetic surgery, women are constantly bombarded with offers on how to improve their appearance.
Aside from this, social media is also a big factor in creating physical insecurity among women. The perfectly curated pictures posted on popular social media channels can subtly make women feel envious and inadequate. This is often why women are pressured to focus on their looks instead of other personal qualities.
If you were asked, “What is your greatest asset?”—what would you answer? Would you mention a part of your body? Your legs, your eyes, your nose, or your figure? Or will you mention intangible things, such as your kindness, your intellect, or your faith in God?
The Bible says:
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
A truly attractive woman is one that fears the Lord. A woman that fears the Lord can overcome any temptation or trap laid down by the enemy. Her kindness and obedience to God’s will is more beautiful than any physical attribute.
If you wish to be a truly attractive woman, you must begin enhancing your beauty from within. Your character, your good morals, and your Christian virtues are what will make you stand out from the crowd. Outer beauty is fleeting, but inner beauty lasts and is far more precious and pleasing to the eyes of God.
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
