Incorruptible beauty

IMG_8626

Here is a beauty that never decays, as the outward body does.  “Gentle” is actually “meek or humble” and “quiet” describes the character of her (a wife’s) action and reaction to her husband and life in general.  Such is precious not only to her husband,  but also to God.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for 1 Peter 3:4.

What will be

Not only will the Lord establish international peace and stability in the future messianic kingdom, but He will also rule the world with impeccable justice.  This is what even inanimate creation awaits.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Psalm 96:10-12.
