The real standard is beauty

1 Peter 2:12, my paraphrase: ‘Keep your conduct before the watching world beautiful/noble/honorable.’ That standard is higher than conduct that is technically right/moral/legal. The real standard is *beauty* that can be admired by people who don’t share your beliefs.

For reference, here is 1 Peter 2:12 (NCV): “People who do not believe are living all around you and might say that you are doing wrong. Live such good lives that they will see the good things you do and will give glory to God on the day when Christ comes again.”
