A Fascinating Video about Physical Beauty

Were you surprised at the transformation in this lady's appearance?

  • Answers vary.
  • Her appearance changed a lot with makeup and was changed further by the computer.

How do you think the way people look in pictures and movies impacts our perception of physical beauty?

  • Our expectations of physical beauty for ourselves and for others become unrealistic and unattainable.
  • We can then believe we are unattractive or ugly since we don’t look like those enhanced images of others.

Why do you think God made us to be attracted to physical beauty when it can change, disappear, or be 'faked'?

  • Physical beauty is a good thing made by God. He wants us to be attracted to good things.
  • However, God uses our disappointment about the changeability of physical beauty to draw us to discover the deeper beauty that isn’t fake – the beauty that won’t disappoint us.
