“……beauty is vain” – Proverbs 31:30
Beauty is vain, but very important. Why then is beauty vain? Beauty is vain because it will fade.
An elderly lady once came to my church to minister. She took out a photograph of a very beautiful young girl and asked the congregation who it was. Everyone said the photograph was a picture of her daughter. Her reply was a big surprise.
She revealed that she was actually the one in the photograph. This elderly lady had changed so much with the passage of time. Her beauty had virtually faded away.
The old lady said “Look how ugly my face has become.” She went on to make the point that life was like a vapor, appearing for a short while and then disappearing.
If all you look for in a marriage partner is beauty, then when the beauty begins to decrease with the years, you will look for another beautiful face.
Although beauty fades away, it is still important, because whoever you marry must look nice to you! This is the secret every woman must know. Your beauty is important in getting and keeping your husband’s attention. If you had to look good to get him, you will have to look good to keep him.
Marriage is not something you must endure but something you must enjoy.
When i first met my wife I thought she was the most beautiful person I had ever seen. And I still think she is. Her physical beauty has always been important in my attraction to her. Beauty will count in your happiness and satisfaction in marriage.
