The common saying goes that “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”. This saying has becomes the belief of some young ladies. They are so engrossed in it to the extent that their perception of beauty have been badly and negatively affected.
These young ladies go extra mile and can do anything to make themselves beautiful. They often wear flashy and expensive jewelleries, heavy make-ups, and clothes that expose sensitive parts of their body. Some even go as far as doing breast enlargement, tommy tuck, buttock lift, plastic surgery, tattoos and all sorts. All these they do in order to look beautiful and be acceptable in the society.
Beauty is more than outward adornment. Outward adornments fades away with time for does not last. No matter how gorgeously dressed you are in the morning, when going to work or an outing, by evening it is gone. This is because it is beauty that comes from within- the inner beauty. This type of beauty has its foundation in Christ. It radiates from within to the outside, it does not fades, and it is long lasting and everlasting. 1 pet. 3:3.
