Beauty. It's something we all want. To be called beautiful by that special someone is like nothing else.

We need to adorn our inner self - our heart, our character, our values - with things that God views as beautiful. Things like the fruit of the Spirit:

Think of Philippians 4:8 - "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." If we think about these things and practice these things, then we will learn these things; and they will be in our minds and hearts.
