Beauty and the Pig week 4

“The mouth of strange women is a deep pit; he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therin.”
(Proverbs 22:14)

”Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”
(Proverbs 31:10)

Scripture offers a detailed and colorful picture of two very different sorts of women. While offering wise and godly counsel to young men, the writers of the book of Proverbs praise one kind of woman and warn against the other. The purpose of this study is to examine what God says about both women – the virtuous woman who fears and honors God and the strange woman whose heart is bent on unfaithfulness and adultery.

A truly beautiful young lady will bring her attitudes and actions under the lordship of Jesus Christ. Her clothing, her countenance, her words, and her behavior will exhibit reverence for God, respect for her parents, and sisterly deference to the young men around her. She will be growing in the Lord, becoming the kind of woman whose “worth is far above rubies.”

This study may not be as applicable to young girls as it will be to the older ones. After discussing it with your parents, you might choose to save this particular study until you are older.

Proverbs 2:16-19
