Inner Beauty

I Peter 3:3-4 says, “Don’t be concerned with the outward beauty that depends on jewelry or beautiful clothes, or hair arrangement. Be beautiful inside, adorning the inward person of the heart, with the lasting charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit that is so precious to God.” In the society that we live in day-to-day, we notice how much individual’s concentrate on “what” they look like on the outside. The emphasis in the fashion industry today is so diverse that it has become a multi-billion dollar profit business. There is a phenomenal variety of every kind, color, texture, culture, style, manufacturer, designer, you name it, it’s available. So we can “have” whatever it takes to alter, change or enhance the outer self.
However, shouldn’t our beauty inside be more important? Because it’s the “inside” that governs what people see outwardly of us. Even though we may exhibit the epitome of fashion and beauty externally, if our heart is filled with attributes such as malice, jealousy, envy, strife and gossip, then what others see on the outside is of little or no significance, especially to God.
The Lord is only concerned that we are “mirrors” of His Image and Likeness in our actions, manners and conversation to others at all times. If our inner beauty is adorned with “His” righteousness, then our appearance to others will continue to be spiritually elegant!
