There are so many technologies for beauty nowadays. Eyelashes extension, face-lift, eyebrows tattoo, skin-whitening, body-fat removal. The list goes on and on.. Women nowadays are striving to achieve perfection. Don't get me wrong, I love looking beautiful. I love beautiful things. But, too many times we work hard to look beautiful on the outside and we forget to take care of our inner beauty.
When was the last time we got jealous of someone? When was the last time we hurt someone with our words? When was the last time we thought of negative thoughts towards someone? When was the last time we desired earthly things/earthly romance? I asked those questions to myself as well.. We can't let our heart wander around by itself. We can't expect to have a clean heart without cleaning our heart each day. It's like we're expecting to have clean skin/face but we never wash them.
I've been disciplining myself to take care of my heart more than anything else. Don't wash your face every morning before having a quiet time with The Lord. If you clean your face with so many skin treatments (face wash, lotion, toner, etc) Why don't we clean our hearts with The Word of God over and over?
There's this bible app that has helped me a lot to take care of my heart. You can download it on your iphone/iPad/any gadgets (haha I'm not sponsored by Apple) and you can choose the devotional readings that you want.
Girls, let's pay more attention to our inner beauty more than anything else. For it says in Proverbs 4:13 "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." Our life springs out from our heart. Therefore, guard your heart. Above all else, above beauty itself.
