being a lady...

Proverbs 11:22 Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion

Discretion is defined as, “the quality of behaving or speaking in such a way as to avoid causing offense…”. Or as I like to say, “It’s being a lady.” It’s just my opinion of course but I think that in today’s society ladies are undervalued and not in abundant supply, but if you meet one you never forget it. It’s sad that in the world today a woman’s greatest commodity is her sex appeal, and we all know it’s true. I mean turn on the TV if you don’t believe me. We like to say that women are so much more than their bodies, and they are that’s true but that isn’t what the world would have us believe. It isn’t what the world is teaching our daughters. Contrary to what some might believe God’s word values women for who they are not simply “what” they are. God’s Word values them for their contributions to their family, homes, husband, and society (see Proverbs 31). When is the last time you saw this in the world? However, that being said Godly women have a responsibility to realize they are so much more than just what their bodies can give them. And they need to act like it…
