True Beauty

True Beauty

The word beauty often elicits images of make-up, perfectly shaped face with elegant features, straight and shiny hair and all features we would probably see in fashion magazines.

What then, is true beauty? It’s quite similar to a beauty pageant question and the answers to it would most likely run like this:

*It’s the inner beauty of a person

*The characteristics our bare eyes can’t immediately see, or

*The kind of beauty that doesn’t fade

These answers can be right in the surface level but did you know that true beauty can have a deeper meaning? Leslie Ludy says in the video below, “The only true beauty comes from a life that is truly surrendered to Jesus Christ.” It may sound radical and too far out from what most people imagine, but if we go back to the beginning of how beauty came to this world: how God created the world and pronounced everything good—her statement does make sense.

King David wrote in Psalm 27:4, “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.”

If a king of a nation who almost seem to have it all—handsome face, well-built body, wealth, children, army—is still seeking the Lord to gaze upon His beauty, there must be something greater and deeper to the Beauty he is attributing to.

After watching the video, do you think we know what true beauty really means? Have we all got it right? Or are we wasting our lives on what we think beauty is?

    Ang tunay na kagandahan ay hindi kailangan araw araw magpaganda sapagkat ang tunay na kagandahan ay lagi maganda dahil sa Banal na Dugo ni Kristo pinaganda at nilinis pa sapagkat pinangwala sala na tayo mula sa ating kasalanan. Ang kagandahan ay wala sa labas nasa saloobin ng isang tao. Kaya kahit magpaganda magpaganda ka pa kung masama ang saloobin hindi ka kailaman magiging maganda sa paningin ng Diyos.
