Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfolding beauty of the gentle and quiet spirit, which is great worth in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3:3-4 NIV
The Lord values the beauty of our inner selves. The inner self sometimes requires time for meditation and reflection before the spirit becomes quiet.
Taking a break from our normal routines and from too much technology can be good for our souls.
A gentle spirit refrains from anger. When we take time to care for ourselves, to unplug from the rat race, and to have quality conversations with our family members, our spiritual life with God deepens as well. Amen.
