1 Peter 3

  1. Let your beauty not be external — the braiding of hair and wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes —
  2. but the inner person of the heart, the lasting beauty of a gentle and tranquil spirit, which is precious in God’s sight.
  1. Concentrate on being filled with the Spirit
  2. Allow his beauty to fill you and flow through you
  3. Don’t look down on enjoying things. Create beautiful things!
  4. But the most important way of reflecting God’s image of beauty is in who you are as you are filled with Jesus.
