“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30
I was disappointed by the Miss USA contestant photos I saw on the internet in May of 2011. These beautiful young women were made up to look like prostitutes.
But then, these photos are similar to the photos I see in my free subscription to the Allure magazine each month, so I suppose I should be used to it by now.
“Sex toys for boys.” That’s all we women are good for. Sex, sex, and more sex.
I love being a Christian. Christianity makes everything different. How did Jesus view women? How He sees women is how we are suppose to be viewed.
The story of Jesus interacting with the Samaritan woman at the well is my favorite.
In Bible times, women were lower class citizens and the Samaritans were despised. So a Samaritan woman was the worst. Not only that, but this particular woman was having sexual relations with a man she wasn’t married to.
How did Jesus treat her? WITH GREAT RESPECT. He first acknowledged her by asking for a drink of water. She was shocked but it opened a door for a conversation about what is really important in life. And the topic wasn’t about sex!
Jesus cared so much for this “worldly” woman that He showed her that there was more to life than just “being with a man.” He pointed her to righteous living and eternal life.
Ladies, we were never meant to be sex toys. Hold your standards high and don’t make yourself up to look like one, and don’t act like one.
If you want true love from a man, you are not going to get it from looking and acting sexy. All you will get is what a prostitute gets-sex, and maybe some money or gifts as the man manipulates to get more sex out of you.
To Jesus, you are worth gold! No, more than gold! He died for your sins, He took your place on the cross. That is how important YOU are. Don’t ever lower yourself to the level of a sex toy! Do not date men who lower you to that level!
Never forget the value Jesus places on you! You are loved!
"Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone,
And yet I know who holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives.”
