When you look up the word beauty it is defined many ways…..
One way is to give great plasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about, etc(dictionary.com)
When you look up beauty in the bible it says
* 1 Samuel 16:7 “…….man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks @ the heart.”
* 1 Peter 3:3-4 ‘ Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and wearing of Gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty and gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
It is not written: in either you must be this size, this height, this complection, wear these clothes/shoes/bags/accesories….
My point is shift your focus!
Stop spending money of designer this and designer that!!
What God requires and considers beauty you can’t even buy. Now, I am not saying dont even brush your hair today or you teeth lol, because your body is the temple of the most high God! Take care of yourself and represent him well!!
However, to be beautiful take a few minutes to look at your heart and not the room full of STUFF you have “Let a man examine himeslf” 1st Corinthians 11:28 and your attitute ( are you showing the love of God), your love for people ( would you share your last)
MK bags are nice but it will not make you inside beautiful nor get you to heaven so today my challange for you is to show 1 stranger love, However you do it is fine with me Just do it….
A hug, a smile, an encouraging word, open a door, close a door, return the shopping cart, pay for an elderly coffee, pay for someone drink, say a prayer for someone, share, give, bake something….you get the idea….
Living Green Full of Grace
