Exterior

Don’t focus on decorating your exterior by doing your hair or putting on fancy jewelry or wearing fashionable clothes;  let your adornment be what’s inside—the real you, the lasting beauty of a gracious and quiet spirit, in which God delights.

–1 Peter 3:3-4

Have you ever met someone who looked good on the outside, but what was inside kept you away from them?

Have you ever met someone who did not look particularly nice at all on the outside, but what was inside made you consider them beautiful?

I know I have.

Clothes, jewelry, haircuts—those are temporary things that don’t show who we really are.

How we act and what we say (which mirror the attitudes of our hearts) are our most important adornments, when we are honoring God with our words and deeds.
