What is beauty?
How do you characterize beauty?
The dictionary defines beauty as a quality present in a person or thing that provides intense pleasure or deep satisfaction of the mind.
People characterize beauty by the temporary; based on outer beauty which in time may fade; based on the enhancements of the physical which is never perceived as perfect in the manner in which GOD designed you. Men view themselves beautiful when they have a full head of hair and their muscles bulge in all the right places. Women view themselves beautiful by altering their physical bodies with make-up; false nails; hair and expensive surgical procedures. Beauty is so badly described by the media that even now men are wearing girdles; jewelry; make-up and believe it or not; having surgical procedures done as well.
I have found in the Bible the meaning of true beauty. I also found in the Bible the meaning of false beauty. If we can’t see the beauty that is within us all; can we at least view some of the examples that I pulled from the Bible?

Abigal, a woman of good understanding and beauty. What amazed me, is that being wise came before her beauty.
