In 1 Peter 1 we are instructed to “be holy as our father is holy.” One of the key characteristics of holiness is consistency, that is being the same from the inside out. One of the best ways to convey this concept of consistency is to look at a baby carrot. Baby carrots, unlike other vegetables such as potatoes and cucumbers, are consistent in their basic color and texture from the inside out. As Christians, we are to be like baby carrots in this regard. Our pursuit of holiness is expected to impact our appearance as we strive to be consistently godly from the inside out.
3 Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— 4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious..”
1 Peter 3:3-4
