Having been born and raised in a Catholic home home, I am well aware that the physical aspect of beauty should not be the highest priority of a Christian woman. I have always been in agreement to the notion that there are far more important elements than outward appearance that make up a truly beautiful woman.
However, I do not think that necessarily means that a Christian woman has to neglect her appearance. I am glad to have found someone who shares the same thoughts. In her post, Fashion for Jesus, Katie of Catholic Sistas expresses how our appearance can help glorify God.
We should strive to develop our inner beauty as God’s word says: “It is your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful” (1 Peter 3:4-5). Nevertheless, I do not think it would be wrong to work on our outward beauty as well. As daughters of a King (Jesus Christ), we should try to look as such.
