Beauty Is Passing

Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised (Proverbs 31:30).

Inner beauty lasts.

When God created the human life cycle, He knew our physical beauty would blossom and fade. But while our physical appearance declines, our Creator intends for our inner beauty of character, based on deep respect for God and a growing relationship with Him, to shine.

Albert Barnes notes that the lesson taught here at the end of the book of Proverbs is the same as the first lesson: β€œThe fear of the Lord is the condition of all womanly, as well as of all manly, excellence.”
