Outward Beauty Versus Inner Beauty
There is something about that which comes from within. The pulchritude is that which is seen, but is often a total departure from the true reflection within. And yet the reality is that the external alone cannot be used to conclude on the entity. Adam saw bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh, not just flesh alone!
Dwelling on the flesh, the externals alone is a gross mistake in decoding the personality. What makes a person includes the deep things, the values, the happenstances in the realm of the mind and events that go in in the heart.
Those who have placed the pulchritude above the inner character have been known to regret it later. Outward beauty have been known to be a complete contradiction to the ugliness that can flow like a polluted river from within.
It is to this intent that the scripture advises
Let your true beauty come from your inner personality, not a focus on the external. For lasting beauty comes from a gentle and peaceful spirit, which is precious in God’s sight and is much more important than the outward adornment of elaborate hair, jewelry, and fine clothes.
1Pe 3:3-4 (TPT)
Even though this is talking to women, same applies to men.
There is a beauty that must come from your inner personality, and this is what defines who you are. This is what people live with, which may be different from what they see initially.
There can be outward beauty and inner ugliness.
Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful face on an empty head.
Pro 11:22 (MSG)
A beautiful face on an empty head adds nothing of value at the end of the day.
Make up, powders and so on are cool, but beyond that, ensure you are beautiful within as well, It will help your marriage a lot.
Have a great day!
