A Million

Mrs. Brown always resented having to arrange her own hair and sew her own clothes, especially while her more “well-to-do” friends boasted of patronizing the finest shops in town. So when the Brown’s financial ship finally came in, Mrs. Brown wasted no time in getting a complete salon treatment and buying a whole new wardrobe including the most stunning dress she could find.
Thus attired in sophistication and expensive perfume, she presented herself to Mr. Brown for his approval. “Well, what do you think?” she asked. “Honey,” he said, “now you look like a million.” “Really?” she asked coyly. “A million dollars?” “No,” he said, “a million other women!”
Ladies, the Bible says, “Do not let your beauty be that outward adorning of arranging the hair, of wearing gold, or of putting on fine apparel, but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit…” (1 Peter 3:3,4). You know, any husband is proud of his wife when she is attractive, but real beauty comes from the heart — not the store.
Think about it.
