Since the recent death of former first lady Barbara Bush, many stories have been told about how she lived her life. One of the stories that impressed me the most is that she wore fake pearls and a $29 pair of shoes to her husband’s inauguration. Mrs. Bush was certainly no slave to fashion!
The Bible tells us not to be too concerned with outward appearances. It is what is on the inside that really counts.
“I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.”—1 Timothy 2:9-10.
