Some more thoughts on #beauty as I try to reclaim it from selfie culture and diet culture... I want to re-define it for myself. I don’t have an official definition I am ready to share yet. What it means to me is still being molded as I learn to live this out, following Jesus not diets.
So far, this Bible verse is my cornerstone on the matter:
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 (ESV)
I love this #truth. We’ve probably all heard it before, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. But for whatever reason, I had not truly taken this to heart or applied it to physical beauty until I let this #scripture verse really sink in.
One more time, for the people in the back: IT'S WHAT'S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS.
