Beauty Treatment: Non-Cosmetic

The average woman will spend $13,000 on cosmetics during her lifetime even though cosmetics merely cover outward flaws.

Unfortunately, there's no cosmetics to mask inner flaws like selfishness, bitterness, self-pity, or impatience. 

We're not all born with the same amount of outward beauty, and even what we have fades as we age. But inner beauty is equally available to all of us.


1 Peter 3:3,4 says:
"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment...Instead, 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.

Here's some good "inner-beauty treatments":
  • Praying for a gentle, quiet spirit
  • Memorizing Scripture verses
  • Doing secret acts of kindness
  • Practicing Gratefulness
Improving our inner beauty has more value than improving our appearance, and it's so much better than superficial, cosmetic changes!

  1. These are all wonderful ideas! Magazines focus so much on outer beauty treatments, but the inner beauty treatments would make the world a much nicer place. I pray your trip to Budapest is a safe one.
