Need Beauty Supplies?

Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fineapparel—rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 1 Peter 3:3-4

Sorry male readers but could not resist this title.  For those men out there consider this to be male grooming supplies, how is that? Many people are overly concerned on outside appearances and making impressions. Are you? What if these same persons were as concerned with the inner man or woman and how beautiful they were inside? 

Looks are so fleeting. A car accident, a fire, a disfiguring disease, or an illness could destroy a person's outward appearance in an instant. It is what is inside that matters more than the outer shell you are 'housed' in. Billions of dollars are spent annually,  mostly by women,  to improve their outward appearance, get younger, get thinner, and on it goes. Why? Why do you care so much as this body is oh so temporary. Sure we are the temple of the Holy Spirit but not so sure this means buying billions of dollars in make up for improvement. Each person has to decide this on their own. 

The point today is each person reading needs to insure they are beautiful or handsome inside. Care more about that than trying to impress people. Take time to beautify the inner self by feeding it a diet of God's word daily. I guarantee you that you will then radiate Beauty. 

PRAYER: Oh Lord thank you for making me just like I am. I know I am responsible for staying in shape and treating my body with respect but help me not try to overdo it so much and be more concerned with my inner self. In Jesus' name. Amen.
