“Just got to finish my make-up.”
“I’ll be down in a second. I’m just ‘doing my teeth’.”
How many times have we heard these things said, or even said them ourselves? Looking good is such a big issue in our society today. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t have to go around looking like tramps, but spending too long in the morning doing our hair, or fixing the right outfit and so on, can soon become vain.
‘Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.’ 1 Sam.16v7
The Bible says that God is more bothered about us making the heart look beautiful than our outer looks. God doesn’t care if we’re too spotty, too fat, too ugly, have the wrong hair colour, or anything like that. We are made in God’s image and in His eyes we are beautiful because He made us just as we are.
God loves the way we look on the outside because He made us like that. But He wants us to strive to be beautiful on the inside.
