If I said I could tell you how to be beautiful to everyone that had the privilege to look upon you, would you want to know? Of course you would! And I can tell you how. Plenty of people have told me I was beautiful and I do not say that to be conceited I say that because there are also plenty of people who think that my looks are nothing to write home about. But both of these people are looking on my outward appearance. Almost everyone that I've met would agree that my inward beauty is fierce. And that is the kind of beauty I want to continue to cultivate and I want you to cultivate.
Jim Carey, in the movie "Liar Liar" said the statement that real beauty is on the inside is a lie that ugly people made up. That could not be further from the truth.You can ask any man and they will tell you that it wouldn't matter how beautiful a woman was on the outside if she's ugly on the inside. Men don't want to be around those kinds of women.Proverbs 21:19 says, "It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman." And Proverbs 27:15 says,"A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike." Both of these are refelctions of her inward beauty. So how can you be beautiful to everyone? By following these three simple steps:
1. Make sure you are FIRST beautiful to your Heavenly Father.
The Bible says that God doesn't see as we see. He doesn't look on outward appearances but on the heart. Check your intentions next time you pass a mirror instead of your hair. Your heart will reveal itself to others, and if your intentions are evil people will see right through your "good" deeds or looks.
2. Reduce the shine on your T-Zone
Change the channel from the ME network and get the focus off of you sometimes. Find out what you can do to help someone else. Romans 12: 15-16 says "Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits." Get involved in someone else's life and dreams and let them know that you are there for them in happy and sad times.
3. Finally think on these things
There is power in positive thinking and people love to be around it, look at it and feed off of it. Thinking positively leads to acting positively. Acting positively could be anything from smiling,keeping a promise or running errands for the elderly. Emitting positive energy makes other people positve and they love to be near you and that makes you beautiful.
If you look like this on the inside everyone and I do mean everyone will see your beauty.
