1 Peter 3:4-5

This morning my devotion was on 1 Peter 3:4-5.

3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

Verse 3 is fine, I don't think I'm especially vain about my physical appearance, but verse 4 is tough for me. A gentle and quiet spirit comes about as naturally to me as breathing underwater. But, it is of great worth in God's sight, so that is what I want. I know it is something I can never accomplish on my own strength, so I am praying and trusting the Lord to accomplish in me.
