Welcome back to the 1 Peter Graduated Book Tour! If you are just joining me make sure to go here to catch up on the first 4 Lessons. Also make sure to head over to Kregel Publications to read what other bloggers have written about the 1 Peter Book Tour.
Lesson 4 covers 1 Peter 3:1-7. This passage is titled, Advice for Husbands and Wives. While I am not married or dating I was still able to get a lot out of this passage. One of the questions asks, “How does God measure beauty (1 Peter 3:3-4)? Is it different from how you measure beauty?”
The above quote of 1 Peter paraphrases 1 Peter so beautifully how true beauty comes from within and now how we look. So many times we believe that “beauty” is what is seen on the outside but I think inner beauty is much more beautiful than the outer. In this day and age where a doctor can fix anything that we feel is “wrong” with you physically, outer beauty seems so fake. Where inner beauty can only be changed through prayer and us working to better ourselves. What do you think about this verse? How can we better practice it in everyday life?
