1 Peter 3:1-4
Oh boy, my lovely vanity issue is being brought up today. I knew it would at some point. It's also that "Woman...submit!" part that SO often gets used WAY out of context. There is more on the submission part later in the chapter, so I am going to focus on the vanity part today.
This one is SO hard for me, because I am unsure if my main question is really ever answered. Is it okay to have nice clothes, hair & makeup...as long as my heart is in the right place? While vanity is definitely a bit selfish...I also want to look nice & approachable for others - not just because I want to feel good about myself.
"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment.... Rather, 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."
Hmmm....maybe my question is kind of answered? A person wearing the most expensive designer clothing isn't beautiful if they have an ugly heart. Clothing, hair & jewelry....they are all fleeting, material things. But it doesn't say we can't have them, nor is it saying that it is wrong to want to look nice. But my heart needs to be "pretty" too, even more than my outward appearance. And I do try really hard to make sure that I have a pretty heart- that is far more important than pretty clothes & shoes. :)
