Beautiful Package, Beautiful Gift!
The greater part of your attractiveness – the part that draws or attracts other people to you – is on the inside, not on your flesh. Our society spends billions of dollars a year to convince you to buy hundreds, even thousands of dollars’ worth of clothes and makeup in order to buy, acquire, or create the things we think will draw other people to us, but which actually have very little drawing power. What you create or design on the outside of yourself may turn a head or two, but it is powerless to turn a mind or a heart.
You are bombarded daily with messages that tell you that if you will only go to the right weight loss c enter and get down to the right size, dye your hair the right shade, go to the right spa, use the right toothpaste, put on the right makeup, wear the right outfit at the right time, and be seen in the right places with the right people, then you will most certainly be able to attract the right man and have the right children and live in the right neighborhood and enjoy the right kind of life!
When we do this and nothing “right” happens for us, we are puzzled. We sit back and ask, “What went wrong?” this is what went wrong: We became the merchandise for those who tried to sell us the merchandise. We’ve been had! The average woman, Christians included, will spend thousands of dollars this year on hats and hair color, earrings and evening dresses. Sadly, they will make no real investment to build up- or support those inner qualities that truly attract others to us and to Jesus Christ our Savior.
If you are not only concerned with what you look like, you are going to be a very shallow, superficial person. People are going to find that once they have quit playing with you, the box you came in was beautifully wrapped, but empty.
Go back to the source of your attractiveness – the Holy Spirit of God. He is the One who woos and wins the heart. When you are His woman, He will draw you to the right people for the right purposes at just the right time.
