1 Peter 3:1-4

Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

One response to “1 Peter 3:1-4

  1. Won over without words by our behavior. So often, we think that our wisdom, our knowledge of Scripture, and our persuasion can win people over and change their minds. God asks us to live purely and obediently and let our lives and our commitment to what we claim to believe change people and draw them to Him. It should not be what we put on the outside to “dress up” our lives, it should be our love and humility.
