Being beautiful inside and out!

Wednesday, 11 August 2010.

I once met a girl who was really beautiful- she clearly exercised everyday, had flawless skin, perfect brown hair, bright green eyes and an attractive smile. She looked like a really nice person… until I spoke to her. She was rude, arrogant and unkind. As I walked away from her, she suddenly didn’t seem beautiful anymore. I have since met other girls who are not supermodels in the making, but their personality and character makes them look gorgeous! Interesting, isn’t it?

Proverbs 11:22 (NLT) says A woman who is beautiful but lacks discretion is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout. What a funny statement! As I looked up the meaning of discretion, I discovered that part of its definition is related to wisdom- knowing how to speak to others with kindness and to make wise decisions.

Basically, today’s verse is saying that outer beauty without inner wisdom is a waste. Outer beauty fades away as we get older, but inner beauty can last until the day we die. And the interesting thing is, if you focus on becoming beautiful on the inside, you will actually look beautiful on the outside too! 

God wants you to be a girl who is beautiful… inside and out!

TODAY’S THOUGHTS: What’s one thing you can do to make yourself more beautiful on the outside? What’s one thing you can do to make yourself more beautiful on the inside?
