How to Cultivate Unfading Beauty

My mom used to say, "Pretty is as pretty does." Boy, is that true!

Some of the prettiest women in the world don't behave attractively (and vice versa).

For me, "pretty" isn't the issue. 
It's the condition of a person's HEART.

I know some people the world might reject who have the most beautiful souls.

A Powerful Scripture about Beauty:

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment,
such as elaborate hairstyles
and the wearing of gold jewelry
or fine clothes.
Rather, 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" (1 Peter 3:3-4).

Yes, beauty does fadephysical beauty. But spiritual beauty becomes more glorious and attractive as a person grows in love and grace. A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised (Proverbs 31:30).

Writer and radio host Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth has often said she wants to grow to be a wise old woman. She walks in wisdom as a child of light, living out what is "good and right and true" (Ephesians 5:8b).

What I have noticed is, the wiser she becomes, the more beautiful she appears. 

Living in the fear of God, with respect for Him and His word that causes us to walk in wisdom, is indeed the best "beauty treatment" any woman can enjoy.

Would you say you have a beautiful soul? What would God say?
