Today is not a day of cutting and pasting things out of my life; it’s about adding to it and replacing what is already there. We all have had lists of people we want to look like, but what about lists of people we want to act like? The people we tend to admire for their looks are typically not the people we want to end up like.
So instead of thinking about the physical aspect of beauty today, I’m going past skin-deep and diving into the heart. Who is it that you aspire to be like? Why are these people beautiful in your eyes?
Verse: “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, 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)
