Bible Verses About Beauty On The Inside And Out

Post date:




Beautiful on the Inside and Outside

Today I am going to go boldly where no man dares to go. I am going to give a list of Bible verses about beauty.

It is not my desire, nor my heart, to cause anyone pain or cause anyone to compare themselves with someone or something else. Instead, it is my desire to cause men and women to think about what is truly a balanced approach to the subject of beauty.

Too long in our society have we gone to one of two extremes. Either beauty is magnified above its God-given role of being a gift to a woman’s husband, or it is vilified as being unspiritual or worldly. Neither of these extremes is taught in the Bible but are both a symptom of an unhealthy values system.

My grandmother used to say that “Beauty was only skin deep but ugly goes clear to the bone.” She was right! My uncle used to say that “A little paint never hurt any old barn.” As blunt as that is, He was right also!

So I am going to go out on a limb and give you a list of verses about beauty that hopefully will cause you to think and maybe bring some correction to some bad teaching or unhealthy attitudes you have allowed to take root in your life.

Bible Verses About Beauty Showing You Are God’s Creation.

You must understand if you are going to have a proper perspective about beauty that beauty is first and foremost in the eyes of the beholder and that beholder is God.

Your value, your worth, and your beauty rating is not given to you by men or other people, but your value and worth are given to you by God Himself.

Psalm 139:14

14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

Ephesians 2:10

10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Psalm 139:15

woman demonstrating inner beautyBible Verses About Inner Beauty

1 Timothy 2:9-11

9 And I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes. 10 For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do.

1 Peter 3:3-5

3 Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. 4 You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. 5 This is how the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They trusted God and accepted the authority of their husbands.

Proverbs 19:22

Loyalty makes a person attractive. It is better to be poor than dishonest.

Final Thoughts About Beauty

As you can see there is a balance concerning beauty in the Bible.

On the one hand, there is to be a primary focus on inner beauty, but that is not to the exclusion of outer beauty, and yet men are warned not to just look at outer beauty because if outer beauty lacks inner beauty it is deceptive.

When it comes down to it, you are God’s workmanship first and foremost. How you display that workmanship is up to you.

Whether or not God is pleased with your beauty is all that matters. Your outward beauty is meant to please God and your husband or potential husband.

Your inward beauty is meant to be the verification that your outward beauty is not deceptive but genuine. Your inner beauty will shine through long after your outer beauty has faded with time.
