I just read an article from Insure.com entitled: “Women are most attracted to guys in trucks!”

Here’s how the article opened, “If you find yourself without a date this Valentine’s Day, maybe it’s not you—Maybe it’s your car!”  The survey of more than 2,000 men and women found that men driving trucks were the most attractive…more specifically black trucks! Conversely, men found that women driving sports cars were the most attractive, and more specifically red sports cars!

As I thought about that article, I was reminded that I don’t have a black truck, and my wife doesn’t have a red sports car!  But more importantly, that article reminded me about what the real attractiveness of a man and woman ought to be according to the Bible,

1 Peter 3 says to the ladies, “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment…4 Rather, 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…”  And to the men it says, 7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect…” (1 Peter 3:3-7)

Now that is a word we all need to hear, regardless of what we drive.

Have a blessed day!
