Proverbs 31:30 “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.”
God makes beautiful women. But it has NOTHING to do with how they look. They say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Well, whomever God beholds is beautiful. There! Enough said about that! Period! Exclamation mark!
I get so tired of the world’s view of beauty. You have to be this height or that weight. You have to have sparkling teeth and shiny hair. Phooey! You need to read Proverbs 31:10-31 to get a real picture of what beauty is. I can’t begin to describe it better than the writer.
So, what has this to do with our children? A lot! Don’t let them buy into the world’s view of beauty. You need to tell your little girl EVERY DAY that she is beautiful because God made her. You need to tell your little boy how handsome he is because he is made in the image of God.
If we don’t build their self-esteem in a holy manner, the world will tear them apart. We need to inform them of how God sees them. They need to experience praise for their walk with Christ, not their “cuteness.”
Don’t hear me bashing attractive people. I am one. Lol. Seriously, I appreciate that people take care of themselves and want to look their best. Just don’t spend more time “decorating” yourself than you do in God’s Word.
