Vanity Bible Verses Explained
Biblical Beauty is Vain Meaning
So nice to have you here with me once again today.
What is it that makes a woman beautiful? That's what we're going to
be talking about in this Christian Beauty Step. Did you know that so
many women in today's world won't even be seen without their make up,
but once they have it on, they're as proud as a peacock of their
beauty? Oh, yes, they'll fan out their feathers and strut around like
nobody's business as long as they've changed their appearance from
God's image to whatever they think looks better. Honestly.
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the Lord is the only
beholder that we should be concerned about, why do so many women feel
like they need to enhance their physical beauty by changing or
altering what He created? The answer is because society has taught
that if you're not beautiful in the world's eyes and changing trends,
you're not acceptable. In trying to make a beautiful outward
appearance, many have compromised the Christian Beauty in their minds
As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is
1 Samuel 16:7
... for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the
outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
Deceptive Vanity Bible Verses
Why Biblical Beauty is Vain
What if for every minute you've ever spent putting on foundation,
mascara, lipstick, fingernail polish, eyeliner, etc., etc., etc., you
instead spent a minute reading the Word of God, or just spent time
with Him? Which one would your betrothed think made you more
beautiful? Do any beauty products really represent who you are in
your heart? Do you think people would treat you differently if you
didn't wear make up? Shame on them and hooray for God! He would only
treat you better.
I realize we've discussed this Christian Beauty matter (Though it may
have been in different context) already, but as usual, there's more
to be said. Women spend so much time, money, effort and thought on
their appearance and they really believe it's their identity. Now, I
have something very interesting for you to think about for a moment.
You'd probably agree that one of the most beautiful things to behold
is an infant baby (one younger than 12 months old). Ahhhhh ... God's
creation at it's most innocent time. But what is it that you think is
beautiful about babies? Is it their physical appearance? Heaven's no!
Christian Beauty Trivia Time ... Did you know that a baby's head is
¼ the length of it's body (no wonder they can't walk)! If your
head was ¼ the length of your body, that would be 16½
inches for a woman 5½ feet tall! What a beauty you'd be!
Babies generally have hardly any hair, they have no teeth, most of
the time they wear a fragrance called "essence of baby puke", and
they're usually so fat that it looks like they have rubber bands on
their wrists and other joints ... So where's the beauty again? But
didn't you agree that an infant is one of the most beautiful things
The thing that makes a baby so extraordinarily beautiful is that they
are unaltered. They are God's creation with no human editing. It's
also pureness of spirit ... The innocence ... It's the fragility, the
helplessness, the fact that for every single thing that is necessary
to maintain life, except for breathing, a baby must depend on someone
else. Wow! I think that what you think is beautiful about babies, is
everything that the world teaches you that you should not be!
Vanity Bible Verses Fear
Biblical Beauty Is Vain And Temporal
Okay, what about animals? What would you think if Fifi got up 30
minutes early before going out for her morning newspaper retrieval to
put on her mascara and rouge and eye shadow and lipstick because she
would be just humiliated if Fido next door saw her without it? Surely
you know some people who actually do put ribbons in their dog's hair
and paint their toenails, and you know it looks utterly ridiculous!
Now, how do you think it looks to God when His naturally beautiful
daughters clown up their faces with paints and plasters? He may want
to laugh ... And cry, both at the same time.
Christian Beauty Tidbit of Truth ... Your spirit is what identifies
you, not what your fleshly being looks like. Your heart is what the
Lord judges. What are you saying to God when you put on make up
because other people judge you by appearance? Is it that other
peoples' opinions are more important to you than God's? You know,
some people like abstract art, and other people, no matter how much
they observe it, can't see the beauty in it. You're not the painter,
You are His painting, yet you're picking up your brush and changing
the picture that God made of you, to suit your own will instead of
His. Would you be insulted if you created something and it changed
itself because it wasn't satisfied with what you did? I'm sure you
may have thought of some comments about how you may not care if
improvement could be made, etc., but you're forgetting one thing ...
made you in His image! You can't improve on that!
Give it some careful thought.
Another thing you may want to reflect on is how much money you spend
on perfumes, nail polishes, make up, baubles and beads and jewels and
such. That probably started when you were a teenager, as that's when
the world really puts the pressure on about a girl's appearance. How
often have you spent more on make up than on something for your
betrothed? Just something to ponder on.
Favour is deceitful and beauty is vain ... They are worthless.
Physical appearance has no worth in the Lord's eyes. Why does it mean
so much to humans ... Women especially? It deserves some honest
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Christian Beauty Point of Interest ... And on the vanity and in your
desk and in your purse and on the visor in your car ... My, oh my oh
my, beauty is vain, isn't it? How many times do you look at yourself
in a day? Do you ever see the image of God in those mirrors? Do you
still think you need all those mirrors, or just the mirror to your
Vanity Bible Verses Truth
Biblical Beauty Is Vain Therapy
Don't be too hard on yourself, now. Realize the Truth, repent and
confess if the shoe fits, then accept God's Grace, and press on.
Now, the entire Verse 30:
Fear of the Lord and faith in Jesus Christ are the utensils you will
need to insure the success of your recipe to becoming a virtuous
woman. Remember, fear of the Lord doesn't mean you should be
terrified of Him, it means that you have the utmost respect for Him
... It means you have reverence for Him. It means that you
put your life in His hands. A woman that fears the Lord, glorifies
Him every chance that she can. By glorifying Him, you're declaring
your faith in Him.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou
shalt be saved.
Human Vanity Bible Verses
Biblical Beauty Is Vain Caution
With the ingredients and the utensils you now have, you will want
to surrender your life to Jesus, and each and every day, walk
dependent upon the Holy Spirit to guide you. Know that He will, with
The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that hope in
The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide
satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto
thou art also called ...
Christian Beauty For The Soul ... Surround yourself with things that
remind you of God and your new walk with Him. When you first wake up,
say "Good Morning" to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Hide and watch.
The times that you remember to do this, does your day go better? Put
something on your nightstand, or on your bathroom mirror that will
remind you that He is waiting for you to talk to Him. Attach a
Post-It® note to your kitchen cabinet, above your washing
machine, on the refrigerator, or anywhere and everywhere to remind
you to greet Him throughout the day. Write a reminder in permanent
marker on the top of your coffee machine if making coffee is what you
do first thing every morning.
Vanity Bible Verses Treatment
Biblical Beauty Is Vain Cure
So, why else should you surround yourself with things that remind you
of God? Because you become as what you surround yourself with. Your
eyes are the portal to the soul, so wouldn't it be a good idea to
influence your soul with holy things? We are greatly influenced by
what our eyes are exposed to. Here is a Biblical example. Jacob
influenced his father-in-law Laban's flocks to bear striped,
speckled, and spotted offspring by facing the animals toward tree
branches that he peeled in striped, speckled and spotted patterns (Genesis
30:37-39). If you want to be conformed to the image of God,
surround yourself with Godly things and experience true inner
Christian Beauty. It doesn't go with your décor? God will
redecorate your entire life when you choose Him first.
It's a sad thing that people, for various reasons, fall out of love
with their soul-mate. Don't let that happen between you and God.
Don't ever stop writing Him notes of your love for Him, or saying
Good Morning or Good Night to Him, or doing special things, going out
of your way, just because you love Him so much. We were just talking
about notes ... Well, what if you got a little yellow Post-It®
note from ... God!
No, really, if you got a little note from the earthly love of your
life you would cherish it and probably keep it in a special little
box with other things he gave you, and probably whatever he wrote on
it would become a special private thing spoken just between the two
As you know, the Proverb that we have been studying is a prophecy
that was told to king Lemuel by his mother. A prophecy is a message
from God. Consider this prophecy a Post-It® note, written by your
first love ... God!
Always Be Aware of His Presence
The Vanity Bible Verses Summary
Biblical Beauty is Vain Antidote
If your child woke up and didn't say good morning to you, you'd be
hurt. Want to possess genuine Christian Beauty? Don't ignore God ...
You are His child. When you look at a crucifix, do you imagine what
it would be like to be standing in front of Him while He hung there
with His life ebbing away ... For you ... Or are you immune to the
emotion of it because you've seen it so many times? It wasn't just a
story in a book that you won't remember tomorrow, or a movie that you
can soon forget when you leave the theater or turn off the
television. The pain He suffered was real. And it was for love. He
put you first in His life and gave up His. Think of how many
times you have missed a blessing that you may have gotten, if you had
only put Him first in your life.
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will
I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I
trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up
my soul unto thee.
"Feareth" ... Has reverence for ... Respects ... Worships. Remember
that the Holy Spirit isn't only there when you want to talk to Him,
He's always there, waiting, and hoping, and blessing, and guiding,
and calling, and loving you. When we think it seems like He's not
there, it's not because He left, it's because we have.
Beauty is vain but inner beauty ... Is BE-YOU-tiful
Christian Beauty Blessing ... His arms are always open wide when we
realize we've lost our way again, so always remember to reflect on God's
Grace and thank Him, each and every day.
