22Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout
is a beautiful woman without discretion. – Psalm 11:22
Most of you have probably read this verse and wonder where I am going with this one. I confess that this has long been one of my favorite verses. It goes back to my days as a youth pastor. I used to quote this verse and ask my students if they realized that this is in the Bible. You might not have realized that the Bible has something this blunt to say regarding modesty and/or beauty, or that it says it with such humor (some might consider it rude). The Bible speaks truth about everything we encounter in life. It gives us guidance and direction and even provides us a means to deal with the situations we face. Women who show no discretion are not a new phenomenon. The sliding morality in our own society isn’t a new thing at all. In fact, there is nothing new under the sun. God has a word to prepare us for all of it. Give it a read, today and every day.
