True Beauty

TRUE BEAUTY

 

“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance

or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look

at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance,

but the Lord looks at the heart.’” (1 Samuel 16:7, NIV)

 

Saint Exupery said, “It is only with the heart that one can

see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

 

Sophia Loren says that, “Beauty is how you feel inside,

and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Though we search the world over

for the beautiful, we find it within or we find it not.”

 

And according to God’s Word, “Charm can be deceptive and

beauty doesn’t last, but a woman [or man] who fears and

reverences God shall be greatly praised.” (Proverbs 31:30, TLB)

 

And as another has said:

    “God formed man,

    Sin deformed him,

    Education informs him,

    Religion may reform him,

    Only Jesus Christ can transform him.”

 

Suggested prayer:” Dear God, please help me to be a beautiful

person within and let that be the beauty of Jesus, and may his love

and beauty shine through me. Gratefully, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
