[Your beauty should be] the unfading
beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.
—1 Peter 3:4
Do you have runway beauty that causes you to be by ragged by reporters and pursued by paparazzi? Maybe. Maybe not.
Regardless, you are a candidate for beauty unmatched by airbrushed photos adorning magazine covers edging the checkout line . . .
“Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God” (1 Pt 3:3-4 NLT).
A beauty that doesn’t depend on couture and cosmetics.
A beauty that doesn’t fade with age.
A beauty that is attractive to people and precious to God.
Pretty on the outside, ugly on the inside
has a short shelf life.
