1 Peter 3:3-4 New Living Translation (NLT) - "Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. 4 You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."
A tragedy or unfortunate circumstances surrounding death is painful to experience. Sometimes, it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways. Don't be stubborn or you'll have to repeat the lesson.
"God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves." 1 John God is more compassionate and understanding toward us than we often are toward ourselves. Our conscience gets in our way, but God is superior to our heart.
