3 The Bibles View Of Beauty The Bible view of what makes one beautiful does not require surgical procedures done in a clinic or hospital

4 1 Pet. 3:3-4 (NKJV) Do not let your adornment be merely outwardarranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel 4 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.

5 1 Pet. 3:3-4 Note that Peter, an inspired apostle, referred to incorruptible beauty All physical beauty is subject to corruption!

6 Physical Aging The hair turns gray or falls out The skin sags and wrinkles take over Weight may increase and may redistribute

7 Physical Aging The natural elements – sunlight and gravity – take their toll All the surgical procedures in the world cant stop this from happening!

8 Inward Beauty Is not affected by time as outward beauty is For the Christian, the inward beauty grows, deepens and matures with each passing day

9 Inward Beauty The inward beauty grows by the wisdom of experience and a greater understanding of Gods word gained from years of study and faithful living

10 Inward Beauty & Obedience Nothing in our world can dim the loveliness of A gentle and quiet spirit (1 Pet. 3:4 NKJV) This is a spirit that fears God and keeps His commandments (Eccl. 12:13)

11 Inward Beauty & Good Works Titus 2:7-8

12 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

13 Titus 2:7-8 (NKJV) in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, 8 sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.

14 Titus 2:7-8 Pattern of good works = be an example in doing good works In doctrine, uncorruptness = present the gospel in its pure state

15 Titus 2:7-8 Gravity (reverence) = show good sense; teach so as to demand respect Sincerity = purity Sound speech = teach the Word of God and the speech will be sound

16 Titus 2:7-8 No evil thing to say of you = If he followed the teaching of the Holy Spirit, no opponent would have anything evil to say against him

17 Inward Beauty & Salvation Is 61:10

18 Is. 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

19 Is. 61:10 Garments of salvation = a souls salvation is cause for rejoicing Acts 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

20 The Virtuous Woman Proverbs 31:10-31 Not a word is mentioned about her physical attractiveness He writes about her charity, industry and her wisdom

21 The Virtuous Woman Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. References – from article by Mike Riley
