How Do I Look? - (Part 3-5)

2. "I hate the way I look; my hairstyle, clothes, face, etc."

If His people spent even as much time on their hearts as they do their LOOKS, God could meet much of the world's need. If YOU could CHANGE the way you look, would you? Without surgery even -- you CAN! Your looks reflect the state of your heart. When it is honest and free from guilt, you face will be lit with the radiance of God. A person who is truly beautiful on the INSIDE, will be attractive on the OUTSIDE. Clothes, like lives, must be simple and clean. Very gaudy or "showy" dress is a sure sign of a lonely, self-centered heart. A Christian must not be a slave to the fashions and customs of the world. Live like the world and you scream to the streets, "Give me dress, give me fashion, give me flattery and I am happy." Take care of the INSIDE and the outward appearance takes care of itself. (2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 Timothy 2:9-10; Romans 12:1-2 Phillips translation).

    I think that this is so true; and it goes both ways, dress discreetly, and discourage others from attempting to glorify the outward instead of the inward.
