Your faith makes you beautiful
From what the women in my life tell me, flipping through a magazine makes them feel beaten down and ugly. The models are always skinny, and their hair and makeup are always perfect. Reading these magazines is as likely to be torture as pleasure.
I’ll tell you what—when you flip through God’s Book, you will find reminders that he is not interested in your outsides but in your insides: “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” (Proverbs 31:30).
Do you know why the external stuff doesn’t matter to God? Because people can so easily turn charm on and off. Charmers are often users. Unscrupulous women ever since Delilah have been using looks and sexuality to get what they want. Do you need any convincing that beauty is fleeting? Have you looked closely in the mirror lately? How fast the wrinkles come!
But a woman who fears the Lord is a different story. How happy the home where the woman seeks first to please her Lord with words and actions. How happy the home where the Word of God guides the way she treats her husband and children. How happy the home where the woman lives, prays, and sings her faith.
You know, the list of virtues of the woman in Proverbs chapter 31 is not intended to intimidate women. Its intent is to get her husband and children to notice her worth and cherish especially her heart of faith. Let’s hear it: “Mom, we all think you’re awesome!”
