Nowadays, people tend to have a different concept of beauty as many often look at what's outside rather than what's on the inside. Celebrities become the benchmark for many in terms of what should be their target image, while billion-dollar industries sell the public expensive items to help them feel better of their outer appearance.

In the Bible, it does not have a clear definition of what beauty is, but it expressed that it is something given by God and it does not focus on only one's outer appearance.

Here are six Bible scriptures to reflect on when it comes to understanding beauty:

1. One thing I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple' (Psalm 27:4). 

2. 'Do not adorn yourselves outwardly by braiding your hair, and by wearing gold ornaments or fine clothing; rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God's sight' (1 Peter 3: 3-4)

3. 'The glory of youths is their strength, but the beauty of the aged is their grey hair' (Proverbs 20:2).

4. The nations shall see your vindication, and all the kings your glory; and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give. You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God' (Isaiah 62: 2-3).

5. 'Your fame spread among the nations on account of your beauty, for it was perfect because of my splendour that I had bestowed on you, says the Lord God' (Ezekiel 16:14).

6. 'The rich will disappear like a flower in the field. For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the field; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. It is the same with the rich; in the midst of a busy life, they will wither away' (James 1: 10-11).
