INCLUDING NON CELEBRITIES OR MODELS
BUT ONE MOMENT CAN WE REALLY SAY THIS 100%?
Before we show images lets talk about beauty.
Sometimes we think that beauty has to do with only people that are models or actors or celebrities and yes we have to include them here but there is a lot a beauty out there and my opinion and I wish to know yours.
What is the definition of Beauty or Beautiful?
Definition of beauty. 1 : the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit : loveliness a woman of great physical beauty exploring the natural beauty of the island A thing of beauty is a joy forever …—Jul 15, 2019
This is a general definition and I will say it gets to the point. But the reality is that is subjective and also here is the most important one and that is that the beauty that is suppose to be the most important one is the one inside as a person because the PHYSICAL is something that will go away in time but not the QUALITIES OR INTERIOR OUR SYMBOLIC HEART. But we recognize that when someone or something is very attractive or unique well is alright to recognize that. I read a very interesting article base on Bible principles which I think is very helpful to see this subject. Here is some information base on the article.
THE BIBLE’S VIEWPOINT
A healthy attitude toward physical beauty can mean the difference between happiness and unhappiness.
Why do we appreciate beauty?
In ways that are still a mystery, the human brain perceives beauty. The Bible does not explain how this happens, but it does reveal why we have an aesthetic sense: God endowed us with his attributes. (Genesis 1:27; Ecclesiastes 3:11) He also created the highly complex human body, giving it amazing form and function. In that regard, an ancient songwriter said: “I praise you [God] because in an awe-inspiring way I am wonderfully made.”—Psalm 139:14.
Today, though, attitudes toward physical beauty are often unbalanced—a trend promoted by the fashion industry and the popular media. According to the book Body Image, a number of studies in Western cultures “suggest that body image is the single most important factor in a person’s overall self-image.” Such a narrow focus, however, can mean ignoring something far more important—an individual’s heart.—1 Samuel 16:7.
Hand in hand with the focus on the body is growing overemphasis on sexuality, especially that of women. “Virtually every media form studied,” says a 2007 American Psychological Association (APA) report, “provides ample evidence of the sexualization of women.” The Bible firmly encourages us to avoid being influenced by such trends—and for good reason!—Colossians 3:5, 6.
“Do not let your adornment be external . . . , but let it be the secret person of the heart in the incorruptible adornment of the quiet and mild spirit, which is of great value in the eyes of God.”—1 Peter 3:3, 4.
Why is it wise to have a balanced view?
Concerning physical beauty, some say: “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!” In cultures where such thinking is common, adolescent and even preadolescent girls learn to view themselves “as objects of others’ desires . . . , to be looked at and evaluated for their appearance,” says a report by the APA. That view can be most harmful. In fact, it has become a major social and health concern that, according to the APA, may lead to “a host of negative emotional consequences.” These may include anxiety and “even self-disgust . . . , eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression or depressed mood.”
“Remove troublesome things from your heart, and ward off harmful things from your body, for youth and the prime of life are futility.”—Ecclesiastes 11:10.
What attitude reflects a sound mind?
The Bible associates “soundness of mind,” or sensibleness, with modesty. (1 Timothy 2:9) Consider: Modest people are not superficial or vain, obsessing about their looks, but they have a healthy, balanced view of themselves. They also consider the feelings of others and thus earn admiration, respect and, above all, God’s favor. (Micah 6:8) Moreover, they are more likely to make true friends and attract potential marriage mates who are interested not just in physical intimacy but also in a lasting and happy union.
For many good reasons, then, the Bible exhorts us to focus on the inner person—“the secret person of the heart.” (1 Peter 3:3, 4) Inner beauty truly is ageless. In fact, it can improve with time! “Gray hair is a crown of beauty when it is found in the way of righteousness,” says Proverbs 16:31. Hence, whether young or old, people who heed the Bible’s superior advice will find the key not only to the beauty that lasts but also to dignity and contentment.
“Charm may be false, and beauty may be fleeting, but the woman who fears Jehovah will be praised.”—Proverbs 31:30.
But I have an observation: How can we or anyone say that this person or this child or this girl women even animals are the most beautiful, because of two reasons in my humble opinion and they are:
- EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
- LACK OF VISION AND SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCE AND CELEBRITY STATUS.
EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
Every person has a different way to see beauty even we talk about sex symbols or sexuality or sensual and that is another subject, but the reality is God create variety of things. Now let me show you and give you an example. Lets talk about Africa as an example:
How can anyone say that this is the most beautiful?
Now let me and us use some common sense. First any human today lives around average 80 years old some more other less, in the past not only years but centuries and even the beginning of time no one know how people look so is impossible to say that this person or even animal is the most beautiful, now with today technology and social media exposure we can appreciate some of the beauty in all aspects but again is impossible because no one can see everything or everyone. But there is nothing wrong to see and appreciate beauty in images.
At the end of the day lets enjoy beauty lets enjoy Gods creation Men Women Children and above all our Planet Earth, but lets enjoy more the beauty that is the most important just one thing be a good person in simple words.
Now in my next post lets see some of our beauty of people just in the outside because remember beauty is EYE OF BEHOLDER. ENJOY.
