Peter heard Jesus talk many times about what defiles someone and what doesn’t. He absorbed all the lessons the Master taught about a character that is eternal. God’s focus is on the heart. His world and government is ruled by love.
What is of value in God’s world? What has great worth?
May I learn from the Master and have a gently and quiet spirit. May I know that beauty is on the inside and not the physical appearance.
Jesus challenges me. I must accept his ways.
Your beauty …. should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3:3-4
