"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."
-I Peter 3:4-
What is beauty? Many people define beauty as what they can see on the outside. Our world today is so wrapped up in outer beauty, that many forget what inner beauty really is. So many girls get so caught up in the latest styles and trends and even go as far as altering their bodies to “fit in” (I get caught up in it at times as well!)
Many people talk about inner beauty, but what all does that entail? Inner beauty is having a good heart, loving and caring for others, and, most importantly, shinning God’s light in everything you do! You have to work just as hard on your inner beauty as you do your outer. It isn’t just about what people can see. God wants your inner beauty to shine brighter than a sparkling diamond.
A way to improve your inner beauty is to spend time in God’s word, being nice to others, and shinning God’s light wherever you go! In my opinion, inner beauty is so much more important than outer beauty! We are all beautiful in God’s eyes, and he made us all in his perfect image! As much as one works on their outer beauty, it will eventually fade. Inner beauty lasts forever! There is nothing wrong with wanting to look good, but to get so wrapped up in impressing others isn't always going to make you happy. I encourage you to work more on your inner beauty instead of your outer. Instead of trying to please others, please God!
