1 Peter 3: 1-5

XiaXue is appointed as Ambassador for Singapore's Local Brand.

DAMN.

But as.... 1 Peter 3: 1-5 says...

1 Likewise, you wives should be subordinate to your husbands so that, even if some disobey the word, they may be won over without a word by their wives' conduct
2 when they observe your reverent and chaste behavior.
3 Your adornment should not be an external one: braiding the hair, wearing gold jewelry, or dressing in fine clothes,
4 but rather the hidden character of the heart, expressed in the imperishable beauty of a gentle and calm disposition, which is precious in the sight of God.
5 For this is also how the holy women who hoped in God once used to adorn themselves and were subordinate to their husbands.

And we have seen two steps.
First, hope in God and fear no man. Don't put your hope in your husband; put your hope in God. (And to the single women I would say, don't put your hope in getting a husband, put your hope in God. The only man worth getting is a man who wants to be second in your life not first.)

Then the second step is that when you have put your hope in God, his sovereignty takes away the pride in your heart, and his love takes away the fear in your heart, and what's left in your heart is gentleness and quietness, as Peter says in verse 4. (Or: meekness and tranquility.)
And that is the adornment you should pursue.
The woman who adorns herself within with such a spirit, will know how to adorn herself without for the sake of the kingdom and for the salvation of her husband.

OK, that DOESN'T MEAN ladies go around looking like a hag. There is a difference between dressing attractively with good taste, and dressing TO attract.
