Ah, June, the start of swimsuit season for many of us. With the start of summer comes the annual journey many women and men commence, seeking the better body to be seen in a bathing suit. Millions of dollars are spent every year on beauty and fitness products, tanning and beauty salon treatments. And no matter how good we look, no matter how attractive we make ourselves, the reality remains. Beauty is still fleeting.
Outer beauty, that is. Inner beauty comes from loving others and loving the Lord, and it lasts forever. Focusing on others, more than on ourselves, makes us more attractive. At twenty, or at eighty.
