"What Makes A Woman Beautiful" by Dr. Hazel A. Claiborn

                                   “WHAT MAKES A WOMAN BEAUTIFUL”

-DR. HAZEL A. CLAIBORN


IS IT WEARING THE LATEST HAIRSTYLES, WEAVES, BRAIDS, OR HAIR ADORNMENTS? IS IT SHOPPING AT SEPHORA FOR THE LATEST MAKEUP? IS IT WEARING NAME BRANDS LIKE GUCCI, LV, COACH, OR MK?  IS IT VISITING THE NAIL SALON WEEKLY TO MAINTAIN A GEL MANICURE? OR DOES IT SIMPLY REQUIRE MUCH LESS PHYSICAL WORK THAN ALL OF THE ABOVE BEAUTY REGIMINES?


SOCIETY PLACES A HIGH DEGREE OF IMPORTANCE ON PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. 

TELEVISION, MOVIES, MAGAZINES, ALL DISPLAY “SO CALLED” BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.  OUR SOCIETY IS OBSESSED WITH PHYSICAL OUTWARD BEAUTY, AND MANY WOMEN ARE CAUGHT UP IN THIS OBSESSION AS WELL.


IS THIS SOMETHING THAT A CHRISTIAN WOMAN SHOULD BE OBSESSED WITH? SHOULD OUR OUTWARD APPEARANCE BE THAT IMPORTANT TO US?  DON’T GET ME WRONG I DO BELIEVE WE SHOULD CARE FOR OURSELVES AND PUT FORTH AN EFFORT TO LOOK AND BE OUR BEST AT ALL TIMES.


HOWEVER, I BELIEVE A WOMAN IS BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE GOD HAS DESIGNED US TO BE BEAUTIFUL.

HE CREATED OUR SKIN, HAIR, AND OTHER FEATURES TO BE SOFT AND BEAUTIFUL.  SO, OUR OUTWARD SIDE OF BEAUTY IS JUST A SMALL PART OF WHAT MAKES US TRULY BEAUTIFUL.


A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IS NOT ONLY ADMIRED FOR HER PHYSICAL BEAUTY BUT HER INNER BEAUTY AND QUALITIES AS WELL.  


AS WOMEN WE TEND TO BE OVERLY CRITICAL REGARDING OUR OUTWARD FEATURES AND WE NEGLECT WHAT TRULY MAKES US BEAUTIFUL, OUR INNER FEATURES. WOMAN WE ARE TRULY BEAUTIFUL WHEN OUR OUTWARD AND INNER QUALITIES ARE IN SYNC.


HERE ARE THREE INNER QUALITIES THAT WILL ENHANCE YOUR BEAUTY MORE THAN MARY KAY OR MAC PRODUCTS.

#1. KINDNESS. A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IS KIND, GENTLE, AND GRACIOUS.  PROVERBS 11:16 

#2.  GOOD JUDGEMENT. A LOVELY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE DISCRETION. A WOMAN WITHOUT DISCRETION IS LIKE A GOLD RING IN A PIG’S NOSE. PROVERBS 11:22

#3. COMPETENCE AND ABILITY. A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IS ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO OTHERS THROUGH HER ABILITIES; SHE IS USEFUL TO HER FAMILY, CHURCH, AND COMMUNITY. PROVERBS 31


LAST, HOW WE LOOK TO GOD IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN HOW WE LOOK TO OTHERS. GOD VALUES A QUIET SPIRIT IN A WOMAN. I PETER 3:3-4.   WOMEN SHOULD NOT HAVE AN ARGUMENTATIVE, CONTENTIOUS SPIRIT. WE SHOULD BE PEACEFUL TO OTHERS AND RESPECTFUL TO OUR HUSBANDS. 


ALSO, A TRULY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IS NOT IN COMPETITION WITH A MAN. SHE UNDERSTANDS HER VALUE AND STRENGTHS.  WOMEN WHO DO NOT HAVE INNER GODLY QUALITIES, ARE HOLLOW AND EMPTY SHELLS.


MY LAST BEAUTY TIP IS FEARING GOD ACCORDING TO PROV 31:30; THIS MAKES US SO ATTRACTIVE TO GOD AND DEEPENS OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
