Marital Beauty

Upon listening to my Pastor’s, Scotty Neal, sermon Sunday at Origins Church I learned a beautiful thing. Before I share this with you I want to ask:

3 Questions About Beauty

1. How do you define beauty?

Pleasing to the eye? Exceptional character? Love for God? Sexy physical features?

2. What makes someone beautiful/handsome?

Their waste line? Their muscle tone? Amazing eyes?

3. What type of person do you like?

Athletic? Smart? Generous?

Everyone could take a minute, think to themselves, and eventually come up with the type of person they like. All of which includes their looks, personality, character, interests, and etc. If you are single then this is a great activity to do before you get into a relationship.

It is important to know what you are looking for in a man/woman. Hopefully, it would be a God loving and God fearing man/woman. This advice can be for anyone who is married or desires to be married.

In Song of Solomon 4:7 Solomon says to his bride “you are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you”.

This short verse speaks volumes. Solomon is getting ready to have sex with his bride after they had gotten married. Right before he says this she describes her insecurity about how her skin is so dark because she worked in the vineyards, unlike most women (Song of Solomon 1:6).

When Solomon tells her there is no flaw in her, of course everyone has blemishes. But to him he sincerely saw her as perfect. Do you know why?

Because she is his standard of beauty. To him, no women are or ever will be as beautiful as she is.

When we get married our standard of beauty is our wife or husband. They are a perfect ten in our eyes.  So now when you are asked the same three questions as above, what are the answers?
