02/01/11 - A Woman of Discretion

Proverbs 11:22
Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout
is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.

We live in a culture were the words like: discretion, modesty, chastity, purity, holiness, and self-restraint are viewed as restrictive, out dated, old fashion, and out of touch. But God's Word makes it clear that a beautiful woman who shows no discretion is like a gold ring in a pig's snout.

The two don't go together. Beauty has nothing to do outward appearances, but goes much deeper to the heart.

I'm reminded daily the lack of discretion women have through Facebook photos, blogs, tweets, and mass media. My heart sinks when I see them sell their beauty for a cheap substitute of what God has to offer.

Most women don't realize what when they lack the discretion God desires for them, they are left feeling empty, used, ashamed, impure, and worthless. It may not be right away and may not even be for years down the road, but at some point they will see the futility of selling their purity and modesty for a momentary boost of ego.
