Bible Verse for Today
“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but 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.” (1 Peter 3:3-4)
We look so much at the physical beauty that will fade with time, and we spend much time adorning the physical appearance rather than the heart.
God looks at the heart first because that’s what he needed most; the body is just ash to him. There is nothing more significant than a man in this world; there is nothing more significant in man but character. A good character with the knowledge of Christ is true beauty, and it attracts favor with God and man.

We can also relate true beauty with righteousness. First, we need to understand the value of inner beauty. Inner beauty is unfading beauty; you don’t need any cosmetics to make it beautiful. When you distinguish between things that last and those that don’t, inner beauty lasts longer than physical beauty.
Jesus is the source of true beauty; we must depend on him today and ask him to beautify us.
