True Beauty

I looked up an interesting list published by TC Candler presenting The 23rd Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces 2012.

I see those eight people in the list whom I recognize by name. They are either South Korean pop singers or actresses.
94 - Gianna Jun
67 - Go Ara
58 - Nam Gyu-Ri
50 - Im Yoona

42 - Kim Taeyeon
33 - Song Hye Kyo
19 - IU
5 - Jessica Jung

Someone( ID annabelleamirah) commented on this list and I agree with her definition of beauty.

“A beautiful girl must be beautiful inside and out. Inside beauty means kind-hearted, helpful, respect parents, being nice to people around and just have all the right attitude. If you have that inside beauty, then your outer beauty will just be glowing out. So, that is the true beauty.”

Our God has a different standard by which He looks at people.

We read in, 1 Samuel 16:7;

“But Jehovah said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. Jehovah does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but Jehovah looks at the heart.””

Dear readers,

Don’t feel bad if you think you are not as beautiful as they look in the outer appearance and height. Shake off the inferiority if you feel. Your parents will say that you are the most beautiful child in the entire world. I think I have the most beautiful children too.

The Bible says that we are so beautifully, wonderfully and fearfully made by the Creator God.
King David praised God for this some three thousand years ago.
We read in, Psalm 139:14;

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”
