Genesis 12:11-15
When he was about to go into Egypt, Abram said to his wife Sarai, “I know that you are a beautiful woman
When the men of Egypt see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife.’ And they will kill me, but they will let you live.
 Say that you are my sister. Then it may go well with me because of you. And because of you they will not kill me.” 
When Abram came into Egypt, the men of Egypt saw that the woman was very beautiful.
Pharaoh’s rulers saw her and told Pharaoh of her beauty. So the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.

Sarah was VERY beautiful, so beautiful that Abraham feared he would be killed for her! She caught the eye of the men of Egypt, so much so that even Pharaoh wanted to be with her!  The thing is...Sarah was in her 60's!
We too, can age like Sarah!  As Christians we should be getting better and better looking, our bodies should be getting stronger and stronger!  The light of Jesus should be shining through us, and that is something that the world can not buy.  
How can we look as beautiful as Sarah when we're in our 60's and even older?  1 Peter 3:5-6 tells us exactly how to do it!  It says, "This is how the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They trusted God and accepted the authority of their husbands.  For instance, Sarah obeyed her husband, Abraham, and called him her master.   You are her daughters when you do what is right without fear of what your husbands might do."
Sarah was BEAUTIFUL, and we have HER GENES!  
I walked into a family gathering this past weekend and someone said to me "You just get more and more beautiful!"
WOW! AMEN! - That's part of the blessing of being a child of God!  Believe it and receive it! 

It says "This is how the women of old MADE THEMSELVES BEAUTIFUL", they did it themselves, they CHOSE to obey God and accepted the authority of their husbands.  You have the same choice.  By trusting God, you are choosing to be beautiful- a beauty that shines from the inside out.
