Real Beauty

When do you feel most beautiful? Is it when you're dressed up to go to a party? What about when you're out on the basketball court or soccer field? Is it when you're at home sitting on the couch with your sweats on and snuggled up with a good book?

Is beauty something you wear or something that you are?

I Peter 3:3-4 says,

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

The world will try to bog you down by distorted expectations of what real beauty is, but don't let it. Check out this video to see just how messed up billboard beauty really is...
