What Is Your Emphasis?

Peter spoke to Christian women about beauty, “Do not let your adornment be merely outward–arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel–rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God” (1 Peter 3:3-4).
Have you not known a very attractive woman who was rude, unkind, arrogant, selfish, and undesirable inwardly? What good is outward beauty if there is no beauty on the inside?
Peter does not teach for women to take no care for their outward adornment, but their emphasis should be upon the heart.
Of course, these things can apply to men also.
Let us emphasize what is very precious in the sight of God.
