• “Is it possible that you can trust your fellow men…that you can commit your dearest earthly interests to your weak, failing fellow creatures without a fear, and are afraid to commit your spiritual interests to the Saviour who laid down His life for you, and of whom it is declared that He is “able to save to the uttermost all who come unto God by Him”? – Hannah Whitall Smith

What Makes a Woman? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/12/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Open any magazine and you’ll get a picture of what the world considers a beautiful woman. But what does the Bible say?

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment; instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.”

Nancy: Do you focus more time and effort on outward beauty or on inner, spiritual beauty?

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Nancy: Are you more concerned about your relationship with God than about being fashionable or physically attractive?

“I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety.”

Nancy: Do you dress modestly? Do your clothes encourage men to have pure thoughts?

Our culture sends so many messages about what it means to be beautiful. Are you going to go with the world or with the Word of God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
