I remembered coming across this video where the show’s host tries to challenge girls in a club to do all sorts of things-from kissing to stripping-in front of the camera where thousands of viewers can later watch. As I watched, I can’t help but feel dismayed. Is this how the girls see themselves? Do they even know their true worth? Are they that desperate to seek attention?
Sad to say, most woman today are no different. Most woman today dress, think, and act in a way that lowers their true worth. All for the sake of attention. Let me make myself clear here. As a human being, it is our nature to seek attention from others. We need attention. But this is where it becomes hard. Unlike men, women are expected to be passive. While it is natural for men to do all sorts of impressive things to seek attention, woman on the other hand have to seek attention by making themselves look attractive /impressive (physically, mentally, emotionally, but more on physically). Thing is, looking impressive on this modern time requires wearing ‘those’ kind of clothes, acting in ‘that’ kind of manner, thinking ‘these’ kinds of thoughts – you know what I mean. To be attractive on this modern world, woman should lower their worth. Not true.
Sisters, being attractive doesn’t necessarily mean you have to lower your worth. You lower your worth and you would attract people with low standards of worthiness. You are a princess of God, you are worth so much more and you deserve to attract people who also have high standards of worthiness. I remember last Sunday, our ministry had an event for the brothers called ‘Brothers’ Day Out’. Call time was very early and I personally have a hard time waking early in the morning so good luck for myself. As I try to wake up early that Sunday morning, my cell phone kept on receiving texts. I checked the texts and saw that they were actually from the sisters of our community. They had planned to support us brothers by waking up earlier just so they can wake us and encourage us through texts. I gotta tell you, their efforts did really woke and encouraged me for the whole day. They are awesome. They are attractive and so can be you!
Sisters, you should first start by lifting your worth. Know that you are daughters of a King and thus, you are to be considered as a princess of God. A princess of God first and foremost have a good intimate relationship with her Father the King. Build and nourish that relationship by having a consistent prayer time. You should also strive to pursue purity. Purity in choosing what to wear, how to act, what to think, and how to build relationships (family, friends, and love life). In striving purity, always be reminded of Psalm 51:10
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Finally, a princess should be loving and supportive. It is you who would encourage men to improve and be better. It is you who would be the source of comfort and healing. It is you who would support us man in handling different tasks from God; to do that, you must learn to follow the path of Christ through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Respect yourselves. Lift your standards of worthiness high and live in it.
FALL IN LOVE WITH GOD
FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR FEMININITY
KNOW YOUR WORTH
BE A TRUE PRINCESS OF GOD
I pray for you all
