|Do clothes make the person?|
Our society spends billions of dollars and countless hours a year on clothes, make-up, shoes, hair products, and weight-loss programs to attract other people to us. And perhaps, if we'll admit it, to make ourselves feel more attractive, more lovable.
But the focus is on the parts—the outsides—that have little power to change a heart or make a life more meaningful.
Are you not bombarded daily with messages that if you buy the right shampoo, try the newest fail-proof diet, or wear the latest designer clothes, then you’ll draw the right people to your side who will give you ultimate happiness?
Those messages are lies.
|If Jesus Christ lives in you, |
you posess the ultimate attractiveness
The world and the god of the world—Satan—would like us to believe that when we have the ultimate head of hair or the perfect perfume, we are attractive. The truth of God’s word is that kindness, humility, and grace draw people to us. The inner qualities of Jesus’ Spirit at work in the secret places of our hearts make people want to be around us because they sense authenticity and warmth.
Let’s quit listening to the lies of society and Satan, and focus on what matters most: the hidden person of the heart, and the source of true attractiveness—the Lord Jesus Christ and His ways.
Have you ever known someone who was not attractive by worldly standards, but whom everyone wanted to be friends with, because they made people feel significant?
