“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.”
While the world around us pushes the idea that beauty is all about the appearance, the Word of God teaches the Truth on the matter.
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain”
Simply put, a beautiful appearance often deceives others of what is really underneath. Being consumed by our looks shows the world how vain we truly are.
1 Peter 3:3-4
“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”
There is much more to beauty than what is on the outside.
“but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised”
A virtuous woman knows that one thing is needful.
Mary of Bethany is our example of what should be our top priority. While Martha was cumbered about with much serving, Mary chose to be at the feet of Jesus, hearing His Word.
“But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
Wisdom begins with fearing the Lord and then seeking Him through His Word. A woman that chooses to make Him her priority is promised to be praised.
