You’re Worth More

Posted by Living Scripture Strong on

You’re Worth More

As a teenager, I spent countless hours in front of the mirror learning how to apply make-up and fix my hair. I’ll show my age a little and say as a child of the 80’s, learning how to make my hair stand 3 inches off my head was an art-form! It required lots and lots of practice to make it look just right.


As I grew into a young adult, I was still very inwardly focused on my outward appearance.  Being accepted by others based on the clothes I wore, the style of my hair, and how I wore my make-up or jewelry was of the utmost importance. Everything about me was based on what others thought about how I looked, not who I was on the inside.


Of course, as I have gotten older and watched as my children have gone through these same pillars of adolescence and young adulthood, I realize it is somewhat built into the human experience. In order to seek human affection and attention, we feel we must conform to the fads and styles to appear acceptable.


Boy, do I wish someone would have told me that NO ONE would care 20 years later what I wore or how my hair was DID!


1 Peter 3:3 says…

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. (NIV)


I wish I would have put more of that time into developing my relationship with the One who sees me for who I am….not what I look like. Peter goes on in verse 4 to say…


Rather, 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. (NIV)


What wisdom and grace in those simple verses! Read them again….

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.

Rather, 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. (NIV)


I’m not encouraging anyone to stop bathing and let your hair be a Hot Mess because Scripture says so!


This Scripture is a gentle reminder that sometimes we can put the god of appearances on the pedestal. We can get so wrapped up into watching YouTube videos on how to do our hair and makeup, or the next fashion trend, we lose sight that the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit is worth so much more in the world.


Isaiah 60:1 calls each of us to…

Arise! Shine! (GWT)


Find your true worth in whose you are, not in what you look like to the world. You are worth so much more than clothes and make-up! Share your heart with the world around you and Live Scripture Strong!
