Recently a new movement began with a group of five young men at Baylor University called Live 31. Their motto is this:
|For the women|
This video, this movement, speaks volumes! What is more important in life? Our hair, skin and waist size, or how we treat our husband and children and how we worship our God? Of course we want to look nice, but if given the chance, oh sisters, I want to be a Proverbs 31 woman far more than I want a nice body or silky hair!
The truth is, when we have God inside of us and we are living a true life of worship, when we are striving to be a Proverbs 31 woman, then we are absolutely beautiful. I feel more drawn to say a woman is beautiful by seeing her spirit than her stylish clothes. True beauty comes from within, from her spirit and her relationship to God.
So sisters, do you want to be a Victoria Secret's model or a Proverbs 31 woman?
If you answer a Proverbs 31 woman, today I have a challenge for you. First, take the above image (ladies take the one that says I'd rather be... and men take the one that says I'd rather have...) and make it your facebook profile picture and claim that you would rather be (have) a Proverbs 31 woman than a Victoria Secret model. Then today spend time focusing on your inner beauty rather than your physical beauty. I'm not saying skip the shower and pig out on every kind of sweets in your house, I am saying instead of worrying about what you will wear and how many crunches you did, worry about how much time you are spending in the presence of God and how kind you are to your husband and how nurturing you are to your children. Let's strive to be the kind of women God called us to be. Let's make our husbands proud to be our husbands and our children proud to call us mom. Sisters, let your glow not be from great skincare and gallons of water intake, but from the glory of God shining through you.
