I have heard it said that a woman's hair is her crowning glory. But is it? How can hair be a crowning glory? To me, the marks of crowning glory are compassion, love, mercy, joy, peace, patience, kindness and forgiveness. What is hair without these things? You can be absolutely wicked at heart and have an exceptional head of hair but what would we gain from such things? No...a woman's heart is her crowning glory! It leads her to open her eyes to those in need, and reach out her hands with compassion to soothe the pain of those who are suffering. What can compare to that? There is a passage of scripture at the end of Proverbs 31 about the Wife of Noble character and I believe it sums it all up: "Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but the woman who fears the Lord shall be praised." What are your thoughts?
