There are so many different products in the market that claim to improve one’s physical beauty. Only a few are affordable, the rest have prices that are unbelievable! That is why most women save up just to buy a beauty product they really want, thinking that it would bring them beauty and happiness.
As if the plethora of products are not enough, there are also various services and procedures that claim to make a person beautiful. These services/procedures are not only expensive, but they also take time to do. And some, like cosmetic surgery, require even more time for healing.
It is clear that people are willing to invest their time and money just to make themselves beautiful. But people often forget that true beauty lies within one’s spirit.
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” –Proverbs 31:30
A woman who has faith in the Lord and follows His word is more beautiful than any other. She has the all the good qualities that is desirable in the eyes of man. She shows kindness in her words and deeds and the light in her eyes reveals the grace of God in her life. This inner beauty lasts longer than any man-made product, service, or procedure.
As the Apostle Paul wrote in his instructions on worship, “I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.” (1 Timothy 2:9-10).
If we can invest our time and money with our outward appearance, we should also invest in making our souls beautiful. Invest your time in prayer and reading God’s Word. Use your resources to help others in need and spread the word of the Lord.
Seek true beauty today and become beautiful in the eyes of God and others.
