'GOOD WORKS'

"But (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works" - 1 Timothy 2:10
.
The best thing a woman can adorn herself with in life is with good works. Meanwhile, a good character defines the true beauty of a woman. 
.
ERV translation states that they should make themselves attractive by the good things they do, for this is more appropriate for women who say they're devoted to God. 
.
How can a woman make herself attractive through her good works (Character)? The matter of doing good or bad comes from the heart (Matt. 15:19). If her heart will produce good character, she must be born again and have allowed the fruit of the spirit to manifest in her (Gal. 5:22-23). 
.
Manifesting good works doesn't start the day you were born, it occurs through the process of time as you make conscious effort of developing its trait in you. Proverbs 31 relates good works as being a virtuous woman - she was described by her works, not by how she appears. 
.
However, Peter further explained how women can manifest good works. They must work on the hidden man of their heart and also adorn themselves with a meek and quiet spirit (1 Pet. 3:3). 
.
It is good to look good but it's the best to be a woman with an enviable character. God is interested in how you appear but He respects what's on your inside. 
.
Meanwhile, beauty attracts a man to a woman, her character keeps the man to herself and it also helps her to win the hearts of her in-laws no matter how wicked or terrible they may be. 
.
Dear women, don't talk about the good things you'd do when you get married, start doing the good things now so that it'll become part of you in marriage. 
.
When a woman (lady) seeks to make herself attractive by the good things she wants to be known for, hardly would she concentrate so much on her outward appearance. 
.
Dear sisters in the Lord, have you added virtue to your beauty? Remember, there are lots of beautiful women with an ugly character!
