Daughters of Beauty (Polished)
The illustration of a godly women from my previous post does not end with her strength as a cornerstone, but it also says that she is like a polished cornerstone, which indicates that she is not only strong but BEAUTIFUL! You don’t polish dirt, but you do polish precious stones like rubies and diamonds because when they are polished it helps to bring out there radiance and glory. I think this should be the desire of every mother and father in raising daughters not just to get them ready practically to take care of a household, and to work hard, but that she would be made beautiful with her mind full of truth, her manner filled with grace, and her person well cared for both in her inward and outward adorning. Prov 31, Ruth.
Beauty should not be overlooked because it is “beautiful” and a gift from God. (Please don’t think that I mean merely someones outward attractive beauty) I mean someone who is a beautiful person in every way.
Confident, yet in submission, gracious, yet not a pushover, beautiful in appearance, yet not immodest in either attire or attitude, well educated, yet not high minded, a lover of hospitality but not just for those who are easy to care for in her inner circle, but also stretching forth her hand to the needy who have no means to repay.
May God help us to raise up strong, beautiful, women for the next generation to see the true glory of Christian women faithfully about the work of Christ.
