Beauty

Beauty

Physical beauty is short lived.

Psalm 103:15–16: As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. 16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.

Jeremiah 4:30b: Though you clothe yourself with crimson, though you adorn yourself with ornaments of gold,though you enlarge your eyes with paint, in vain you will make yourself fair; your lovers will despise you; they will seek your life.

1 John 2:15–17: Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Real beauty is on the inside.

1 Samuel 16:7b: For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

Psalm 45:13a: The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace.

1 Peter 3:3–4: Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 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.

The closer we live to the Lord, the more beautiful we become.

Exodus 34:29: Now it was so, when Moses came down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the Testimony were in Moses’ hand when he came down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone while he talked with Him.

Ecclesiastes 8:1b: A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the sternness of his face is changed.

2 Corinthians 3:18: But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
