As girls we often obsess about beauty. We want to be fashionable (modestly of course). We want to have it, but it many seems to elude us. The perfect outfit won’t come together. The best make-up seems to never work right. We never look as good as the model.
But do we have to? Sometimes I even get stung by this bug. I try to fix my hair just right. I try to be stylish. I try make myself feel beautiful.
Yet beauty doesn’t come from the outside. I’ve seen beauty in an old woman’s eyes and in a small girls hands. Beauty doesn’t come from your outfit or looks. It comes from your heart.
Does that mean we should neglect the outside? No, the outside merely reflects what’s on the inside. So take care of both. Beautify the inside and take care of the outside. Let them both reflect a heart that has been touched by the love of God.
