(Proverbs 6:25 KJV) Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
“Beauty” (3308) can be a positive trait. This is not about good looks being bad. It is about a bad heart looking good. It is about priorities and goals.
We are so easily swayed by outward appearances. I am currently reading through Pride and Prejudice for the first time. It is an act of love for the women of my life. One of the things that comes through is the way the women of the novel judge every man on two things: His looks and his money. It is an awesome walk through shallow values. I am not sure we are any better.
There is a saying that beauty is only skin deep but ugly goes all the way through.
So? We have heard this so many times. We need a constant reminder. Stay alert. Keep in mind the standards of upright living. Apply them.
