Improving the Face and the Soul

Whenever I buy new makeup I am always excited.  It is exciting to try it on, because it represents the prospect of looking prettier.  Improving my outward appearance.  But why am I not this happy and excited when I think of those things which bring the prospect of improving my inward being?  Which set me on the road to becoming more virtuous?  When I buy new makeup I am reminded, I need to enjoy waking up early for church, standing up for prayer, reading the Bible, just as much.

One's outward appearance is only useful if it reflects on what is inward. - H.G. Bishop David
