At Issue - Weight

Verse: 1 Samuel 4:18

Sure, we hate that our society tells us the “ideal” woman is 5’9’’ and weighs 110 pounds. We aren’t all meant to look like supermodels! Plus, we know that God loves us just the way we are. Of course that’s true ... but hold on a second. Eli’s life illustrates the fact that how we treat our bodies has serious consequences. So instead of thinking skinny--let’s think healthy. Doesn’t God want us to care for the bodies he gave us? Ask yourself what a healthy lifestyle looks like for you.

This devotion is from the NIV New Women's Devotional Bible or True Identity by Zondervan. Used with permission.

Health is far more important than what society says is best for us.  As far as looks go, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".  As my Mom used to say, "No one looks beautiful when their feet hurt." 

Edgar Rice Burroughs:  "Smiles are the foundation of beauty."  

Yes, we all want to be attractive.  But what is attractive?  Good to look at?  No.  It's being someone that others want to get to know because you are you.  Sure we should make a point of dressing nicely, behaving politely, cleaning ourselves -- but more than that, we need to be true to the godliness within us.
