True Beauty

True Beauty
by Amber Doolittle, 2009

How can I be beautiful?
It's not about hair or skin,
It's about what's on the inside.
True beauty comes from within.
A love for Jesus and others,
And joy that overflows,
Peace that comes from God alone,
Patience that never slows.
Kindness shown to everyone,
Goodness that does not end,
Pure, unchanging faithfulness,
To God and to your friends.
Gentleness of spirit,
And finally self-control,
When you possess all of these fruits,
True beauty's gonna show.
So how can I be beautiful?
The Bible's  the best place to start.
"Man looks at the outward appearance,
But God looks at the heart." 
1 Samuel 16:7b
