True Beauty

What do you consider to be the definition of true beauty? For me, it is not the outside that matters.

To me, (and God,) what matters is the inside.

There might be a girl at your school who is remarkably beautiful. She is the popular girl because she doesn’t ever have a breakout of acne, she is the popular girl because she can apply make-up beautifully, even though she doesn’t need it, and she is the popular girl because she always wears the latest fashions.

But she is not a kind girl. She bullies people that she doesn’t think are pretty enough, she bullies people with disabilities, and she hurts animals. She also does not listen to the teachers and her parents.

Even if she is beautiful and popular, she does not have true beauty. You could have all the beauty in the world, but if you had a cold heart, none of it would matter.

Then there might be another girl at your school. She is quite homely, and is not very popular, but she had true beauty.

She is kind to everyone she meets. She stops to talk to the girl who needs help with her math, and maybe even offers to help that girl with her math. She brings home animals she finds on the street, and helps them in any way she can. She is obedient, or at least she tries to be.

Which of these would you like to meet? The popular girl? Or the girl with true beauty?

I hope you are all having a great week and spring break!

In Christ,

  1. This was great! I love the way you write. ❤️ It’s very sad to see how, especially in today’s society, people tend to admire others over their material worth, rather than their spiritual worth. We are so quick to judge by outside looks. This was a wonderful reminder! Thank you!

  2. Good post! Thanks for reminding us that God looks on the heart- not the outside. Some days when I catch myself comparing to someone else’s beauty- I smile and remember that God’s light in my eyes, an encouraging smile on my face, and hands ready to serve are more beautiful than designer clothing or make up. Keep writing for Him!
