Rebekah was very beautiful and old enough to be married.   --Genesis 24:16

"We live in a culture that only worships a certain kind of beauty…
The 6’ tall, 90 lbs., Barbie-figure, Photoshop-manipulated beauty.

Because we live in a culture that worships that kind of beauty, we have a tendency to swing the pendulum the other way and say that it doesn’t matter how you look…that everyone is beautiful in their own way…that you don’t really need to keep yourself looking good.

And, if we’re not careful, we begin to think a pursuit of beauty is a bad thing…
But it’s not…because God creates beautiful things.

God wants us to be beautiful people inside and outside…
Not according to culture’s standards but by His design"
