Little Bird: On beauty


"Kali

(Proverbs 30:30) 'Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.'

Kali... fear the Lord, not the mirror, not people, not external standards... fear Him. Man looks at the outward but God looks on the heart. Or disappointment and brokenness should come when we look in  God's Word (soul mirror) and see our real flaws (our heart character)- our sin. We should respond in disgust and repentance, and seek to become more like Christ.

It is good to take care of yourself. But to say you are ugly is wrong. Beauty is vain, empty, hollow, shallow. Beauty goes away. What you are becoming on the inside will last. You have a lot of inward beauty. Work on improving that. Spend 10% of your thoughts and time on the care of your body and 90% of your thoughts and time on the inside... the part that God judges, sees, and cares about.

In summary,
- Review your thinking
- Fear God
- Beauty is empty
- Concentrate on heart beauty

I love you,

Daddy"
