Your inner beauty

Your Inner Beauty
1 Peter 3:3-5

3) Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair,
and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

4) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not
corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the
sight of God of great price.

5) For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in
God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands. (KJV)

3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair
and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, 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. 5For this is the way the holy women
of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful.
They were submissive to their own husbands, (NIV)

3:3 Do not let your ornaments be those of the body such as dressing of the
hair, or putting on of jewels of gold or fair clothing; 3:4 But let them be
those of the unseen man of the heart, the ever-shining ornament of a gentle
and quiet spirit, which is of great price in the eyes of God. 3:5 And these
were the ornaments of the holy women of the past, whose hope was in God,
being ruled by their husbands: (BBE)

Prayer for the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for liberating women to be what You have
called them to be. Lord, may they, as women, please You first, and secondly
please their husbands. Lord, may they have a submissive spirit toward their
mates and seek to minister and serve them as You would. Lord, purify my
heart and create a right spirit in me. May Christian marriages be an example
of Your love in this earth. Deliver us from all quarrelling, bitterness and
anger and give us a meek and quiet spirit which is in Your sight, of great
price. I ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

God is Good All the Time!!!
