True Beauty

True Beauty

 Today I would like to talk about what makes people truly beautiful! It is not about the clothes you wear or how perfect your hair is, it does not matter how pretty you look on the outside! True beauty comes from the heart! The bible says in 1Samuel 16:7 - But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

     God looks at our heart, not our outward appearance! We should try to look nice for the Lord by being modest.  We should always try to look our best for Jesus, to be a good witness, but we should never be overly concerned about the way we look! Some times we get too focused on how we look. We forget that we should be more focused on God and serving him. Looks can only go so far, but godliness will help us our whole life! Many girls are so concerned about how they look.  They can become snobby, prideful, and are not living for God.

    Our world is so focused on the outward appearance and not the inside! Everybody is so concerned about the latest fashions, instead of focusing on trying to be more godly. When girls are beautiful on the inside it shows on the outside! We need to strive to be- kind, hardworking, giving, and patient instead of being- stylish, selfish, self-centered, and worldly! You must decide if you want to be popular and pretty when you grow up or kind and godly. When we get to Heaven the way we look will not matter, but our godliness will! Let your inner light shine today!
