1 Peter 3:3-4 (NIV) 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.
Christian wives/women should not seek their “adornment” or “beauty” or identity in how they dress or wear their hair. This is in no way meant as a ban on braiding or jewelry. Rather, it’s a warning about using external things in an attempt to find true beauty.
Beautiful hair, jewelry, and expensive clothes will not win her husband to Christ. It is the meek and quiet spirit that will have the potential to have an impact on him in a Godly way. Outward adornment only ages and fades away. The inner beauty of a humble and quiet spirit does not fade away.
Rather, it increases in beauty and value as time passes. Having a ‘quiet spirit’ does not mean the woman is not to talk. The meaning is to have a peaceful or humble spirit where the woman exhibits a calming influence for her husband.
Live lives of purity and reverence to the Lord.
