Too often we hear these words, but what do they really mean? What is Beauty Is Skin Deep?
Here is a break down of what I think it means.
To me it all comes to not only having a pretty face, but a pretty soul too. The most important thing to US is to work on our inner selfs. It starts with the little things; wishing your friends well, treating people with respect and going the extra mile for the next person. It’s that simple.
“Do not let your adorning be external – the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear – 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 3:3-4
We spend a lot of time focusing on our outward appearance, improving our physique, choosing the right outfit, perfecting our hair. In all, a lot of thought goes into creating just the right look. Do we spend the same amount of time cultivating our inner beauty? We know what inner beauty looks like.. patience, peace-loving, generosity, fearlessness, filled with strength, kindness, consideration of others.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to offend anyone in any way. I’m just trying to tell you that beauty is on the inside, that no one can see. Beauty is never on the outside that everyone can judge.
Are we spending more time worrying about whether the shoes will go well with the outfit instead of the kind words that come out from our mouth? Ultimately our words are a reflection of our hearts ❤
