Bible Verses About Beauty

For the Christian woman, the search for beauty can be tempting. However, keep in mind that the Bible doesn’t discourage women from being attractive. While beauty can be seen as an idol in the Bible, the idea of beauty takes on a new meaning for the Christian woman.

Beauty Displayed in the Bible

When you read through the Bible verses that talk about the beauty of a woman, they aren’t said to be wearing clothing that’s poorly fitting, out of style, or generally unattractive. You’ll find many places in the Scriptures where women are said to be wearing fine clothing and jewelry.

Proverbs 31 is a passage completely devoted to describing a Godly woman and is put forward as a model to follow. She is said to be wearing clothing that is both high quality and colorful. In the Song of Solomon, a bride is said to be adorning her appearance with jewelry.

We can take these passages to mean that beautiful women are not wrong to take care of their clothing and style. Many Bible verses about beauty talk about God being the creator of beauty and how delights in it. However, physical beauty should be seen as a small part of our lives and not be our entire focus. In addition to being physically beautiful, there are many traits which women are said to have that contribute to their beauty.

Beauty Comes with Self-Worth

Remember that beauty is both internal and external. All women are beautiful when they have a degree of self-love and self-esteem. Once again, Proverbs 31 describes a woman who is assured in her place. She is able to run her household and even takes part in buying and selling for the home. Although this woman is not viewed as being arrogant, she is also known to confident which allows her to run her household. Women who want to pursue beauty should have confidence knowing that they are made in the image of God.

Beauty Comes from Kindness

Kindness and, in contrast, cruelty, are two of the determining factors on how we view people. If you spend time with a person who is kind, that person probably is thought of as being beautiful regardless of their physical appearance. Kindness and thoughtfulness are two traits that make a person beautiful. Being kind on a daily basis means treating other people with dignity and respect, considering other people’s feelings, and much more. While both men and women should be kind in their lives, women are often discussed as being kind in the Bible.

Beauty Involves Doing Good Deeds

Although beauty is often considered to be something physical or internal, beauty can also be displayed in an action. Paul talks a great deal about beauty in his letters to the early church. He recommends that women spend less time on their appearance and instead focus on performing good deeds as this is appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

This doesn’t mean that good deeds are the only way to be beautiful but they are a way to show God’s image in yourself. This means that women who want to be beautiful are not only taking on the attitudes of beauty described in the Bible but they also are involved in the local community, church, or other works as able.

Beauty Fears the Lord

Proverbs tells readers that beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. This passage can appear to be confusing but fear doesn’t necessarily mean being scared of God. Instead, fear can also mean reverence and respect. Beauty comes from respecting God and giving Him the praise and devotion that He requires.

Conclusion

Although we may often struggle to define beauty, it’s often apparent when we see it displayed. Women can recognize what elements of themselves or other people are beautiful from a Biblical perspective by considering these factors.

One of the passages to consider internal and lasting beauty is the passage describing the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These are attributes of a person who is living in accordance with the Holy Spirit according to Galatians. Women who strive to be beautiful can follow these principles set forth by the Bible.
