Psalm 45 Bible Study
1. Inward beauty
Nowadays, many people care about external beauty, about the clothes they wear and how they appear to people because they want others to think nice of them. The most important thing is inward beauty, loving God and doing all his commandments from your heart. In 1 Peter 3:3-4, whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price (1 Peter 3:1-6; Proverbs 31:30, Proverbs 3:15-18; 2 Corinthians 4:16; Proverbs 31:10-31)
