Want the most fashionable clothes? Clothe yourself with Christ through baptism (Galatians 3:27).
Need more exercise? Get up every day to “walk in the light” and run the spiritual race (1 John 1:7; Hebrews 12:1).
Need more strength? Then become strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might (Ephesians 6:10).
Want to smell amazing? Then become a sweet aroma and a fragrance of Christ to God and to others (2 Corinthians 2:15–16).

True beauty has little to do with physical looks and everything to do with our spiritual appearance to God. Don’t focus only on the outward appearance, but also on inward beauty (Matthew 23:27).

After all, “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain” (Proverbs 31:30).

Let’s remember, “The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).
