You only have to turn on the television for 5 minutes and you are inundated with ads for facial creams and lotions to smooth, tighten, primp and improve. People are so consumed with how they look, that they hand over millions of dollars.
Whatever happened to the wrinkles on Grandma's face being a sign of a life well lived? Now women are so concerned with the smallest wrinkle, that they layer on the makeup.
Whatever happened to the calluses on our hands meaning a hard day's work? Now we are so concerned that we will break a nail that we don't want to risk the hard work.
Whatever happened to being concerned about what God thinks? God has blessed each and every one of us have different features that make each and everyone of us unique. Why would we want to cover what God has given us, under synthetic compounds that just make us look made up and fake? Is that any way to treat God's gift to us?
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting: but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised
Proverbs 31: 30
Proverbs 31 is the blueprint of what every woman should be. Take a minute and read it.
Instead of covering up what you have been given, instead of worrying what the world is thinking about the blemishes or wrinkles on your face, remind yourself that what they consider unattractive is a fatal attraction. But GOD, loves each and every one of those problem pimples and He created you in His perfect image. Worry about what He thinks and know that He made you beautiful!
