What Is Beauty?

Solomon described outward beauty as being vain (Proverbs 31:30). The NIV translates the term vain as “fleeting.” Both charm and beauty are superficial and temporary. Real beauty originates from the heart (1 Peter 3:1-4) when a woman displays (1) reverence towards God (Proverbs 31:30), (2) a meek and quiet spirit (1 Peter 3:4), (3) being submissive toward her husband (1 Peter 3:5-6).

A single key word: “deny” (Matthew 16:24).

We must be willing to deny ourselves of temporary worldly treasures in order to attain those eternal treasures (Matthew 6:20; 1 Timothy 6:17-19; 1 Peter 1:3-4; cf. Hebrews 11:24-26).
