What is the definition of beautiful? How is beauty defined? Is it just about being good looking, about having a symmetry of features, or about being declared a beauty queen in a pageant? Websters says beauty ‘gives pleasure’. The Learner’s Dictionary says it’s about being ‘very attractive in a physical way.’ Some say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Others say beauty is only skin deep. We believe beauty goes much deeper than the skin. God has made everything beautiful. And this is God’s definition of beauty.

Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. 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. – 1 Peter 3:3-4 (NLT)
