Women of the Word: Daughters of Humans

Before Noah and the Great Flood happened, we read about the expansion of the human race in the Bible. Genesis 6:1-2 reads: “Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.” Just like God created the girls of old beautiful, He created and continues to create all the girls of today beautiful. And that is what we can take from the daughters of humans.

1. The daughters of humans were beautiful. From the verses above, we see that the men of old took wives of all that they chose of these beautiful women to marry them. However, they chose only by what they saw (the outward appearance). They did not look at the heart. They did not think to consider if these beautiful women loved God as they should have.

Be assured that God made you beautiful. He made all of us beautiful in different, unique, and special ways. There has never been anyone like you before, there isn’t now, and there never will be. Live confidently in the awesome fashion that God created you in!

But always remember that our outside beauty is not what defines us. We do not derive our value from the way we are seen in the eyes of others. Our physical good looks are fading away each day, but our hearts should be growing lovelier as we strive to do positive works, care for others, love more, and honor God. I Samuel 16:7 says: “But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.'” When a guy shows interest in you, he should not only fall for your beautiful face but also for your beautiful heart.
