“You look wonderful tonight.” “Oh, you’re so pretty!”
These are some of the words that most women love to hear, right? It is innate in us! We want to be affirmed, we want to be assured every now and then that we are beautiful. But what makes a woman truly attractive?
Is it the outside appearance that matters? That 36″-24″-36″ ideal figure that almost every woman wants? That fair, white, flawless skin that we usually see in every skin soap and lotion commercials? Are these really the true basis of being beautiful? And what if we’re not like that? What if we don’t have that curves in our body. What if we have scars on our legs. Are we considered ugly?
We have heard the answers to these questions many times. Far too many in fact, that we tend to forget them completely. This world teaches us not to be contended with what we have, it keeps us being more eager to change what we truly are. This world has given beauty a different meaning. But let us take a look on what the bible has to say.
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the fear-of-God. (Proverbs 31:30 MSG)
