Beauty of the Heart

"A Beautiful Woman Is a Person, Not a Body"

1 Peter 3:4-7

Let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening.

John Piper's story about being in the airport underlines the importance of men being responsible for what they look at and what they entertain in their hearts. This passage should be freeing to women, understanding that the beauty that comes from within is precious to God. Put your hope in God, not anything of this world.

Daughters of Sarah, do good and fear not as you are beautiful, valued and loved by God!
