We tend to get fascinated with beauty, beautiful things, beautiful people, and/or beautiful qualities. We go to the point of admiration. Trying to understand the beauty that we see. Trying to dissect each beautiful thing about it; the rough edges, the deep crevices, the hard exterior, the sharp and dull edges. While we are fascinated and letting our imaginations and thoughts run wild, have we taken the time to swap roles? Maybe the thing or person you think is so beautiful doesn't feel that way at all. Maybe the hard exterior, with the beautiful overlay, has a hard interior with no vibrant color, and no true understanding of what the admiration is all about because the inside is such a cold and dark place. The outer beauty came from weathering of many storms. To understand true beauty, you must do it from the inside out. The same needs to be done in regards to the object or person that's beautiful, needing to take a look on the outside to see the beauty everyone else sees.
1 Peter 3:3-4
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
