Just a thought.........

Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

It looks to me like it DOES matter what is on the outside.
It isn't just the heart.

Why would we want to boast that it is the heart that matters anyway?
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

  1. Search me, O God, and know my heart today,
    Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray;
    See if there be some wicked way in me;
    Cleanse me from every sin, and set me free.
Ask the Lord to search your heart, so your outside will be acceptable.
Your works.
What others see.

Thanks for this thought. We were just talking with our 10 year old daughter last night about how God wants us to be "pretty" through and through. I shared with her that is important that we as Christian women should show a godly appearance on the outside. We must remember that we are representing Jesus in all that we do. I think that goes for what we look like on the outside.
I will add this verse in Titus to our study.
Thanks!
