[W]omen should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness--with good works.A week ago, my ladies Bible study listened to a compelling talk given by Carolyn Mahaney on the topic of true beauty. Here's a link to that recording. I would encourage you to listen. It is not a downer, it is not a bash fashion session. It is admonishing. The bottom line is this, Ladies: what are we spending our time on, and to what end? Why are we exercising? Why are we eating what we eat? Why are we thinking so much about what we are eating? It's just like every other area of life. We are here on earth to bring God glory. We are here to do good works for God's glory!
I Timothy 2:9-10
