  1. That is such a beautiful message. All children should be taught this. And that means girls and boys. They are beautiful and need to treat others as beautiful. They’re all special.

  2. I try to teach my second graders this. Beautiful is what’s beautiful to you. Superficial beauty is skin deep, but true beauty goes to the soul.

  3. This is such an important lesson to teach children. I wish I had been taught it better when I was young. Maybe I would not have gotten into the trouble I did.

  4. I had an experience years ago where I had recently met two young women. Physically, I considered one to be gorgeous and, quite frankly, the other to be somewhat homely. I got to know them both better, and both were very nice people. After a while, I had gotten used to the looks of the “gorgeous” one, and she seemed pretty. One day I looked at the other, and thought, “You know, she seems kind of pretty.” After a short while, they both seemed pretty.

    Your perception of a person’s inner beauty really can change how you see them physically.

    • You learned a very important lesson. My babies are the most beautiful in the world to me. I cannot see them any other way. Except when they get in trouble.

    • I Corinthians 12:23

      And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

  5. True beauty is inside your heart.
    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.

  6. What women need to know is they’re all ugly and property of their men.
