God's Beauty Treatment
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30
Recommend Reading Proverbs 31
Americans spend billions of dollars every year on cosmetics, but the best beauty treatment isn't found in a bottle, but in a book - the Bible. First Peter 3:3-5 says, "Do not let your adornment be merely outward - arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel - 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. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful."
Little is said of the physical qualities of the woman in Proverbs 31, though we assume she had a pleasant appearance. It is her character that's emphasized - her trustworthiness (verse 11), her hard work (verse 13), her business instincts (verse 16), her generosity (verse 20), her creativity (verse 22), her initiative (verse 24), and her strength (verse 25).
It's not the make-up on her face but the make-up of her heart that makes her beautiful. We can't all be fashion models, but we can all be fashioned by grace as models of our Lord Jesus Christ.
