Beautiful People (1 Samuel 16:7)

Nowhere in Scripture we are told to value people on the basis of how they look. We shouldn’t measure people’s worth by whether they are good-looking, have beautiful hair and trim bodies, or dress in the finest clothes.

It’s easy to show partiality to someone who looks sharp and wears the latest fashions.

A person’s real worth lies far beneath the surface. The Bible tells us, “Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). It is “the hidden person of the heart” that God values (1 Peter 3:4).

People don’t have to be physically attractive to acknowledge God in all their ways, or to be unselfish, merciful, and compassionate. It doesn’t take a model’s face to develop self-control, patience, wisdom, and courage. These are qualities of truly beautiful people. – Mart De Haan

 Beautiful lives are those that bear

For other lives their load of care;

Beautiful souls are those who show

The love of Christ where’er they go. – Anon

 Nothing is more attractive than Christlikeness.
