The Proverbs 31 woman is a beautiful lady! Her beauty shines as she serves her husband, her children, and the ministry that God gave her, with every bit of strength and love that she has.

Every Godly mother, who has a son, should always caution him to pursue and fall in love with a woman of God who is, not just beautiful on the outside, but even more so, beautiful on the inside. Proverbs 31:30 NLT says, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised.” A woman’s beauty is not going to last. Everything that we can see is temporal: money, beauty, clothing, etc.

The outward beauty of a woman has deceived many a man, who made his choice of a wife by the way she looked, while caring nothing for the beauty of her soul. Love and kindness is written in the heart of a Proverbs 31 woman and it will show itself in her tongue. Her heart is full of the world to come, even when her hands are busy providing for her family.

A woman, who is beautiful only on the outside, is limited to physical beauty, but a woman, who loves the Lord with all that she is, one who most people might consider average looking, is the more beautiful woman of the two, in the eyes of God and her beauty will last for eternity. The world focuses on what we look like on the outside, but God always focuses on what we look like on the inside.

Every woman’s beauty is going to fade. It doesn’t matter if a woman spends hours and hours working on her hair, makeup, or finding the perfect outfit with an expensive bag and shoes to match. God would rather see women work on becoming beautiful on the inside — to lay hold of the kind of beauty that lasts forever. There is absolutely nothing wrong in a woman looking pretty, but Godly women should make sure that the fear of God reigns in their heart. The beauty of the soul is what is most important. That’s the kind of beauty that will last forever!
