Being Deceived by Charm Part 1 of 2
Have you ever noticed how much the world is consumed in the whole “celebrity” thing? Some people will do just about anything to be famous. A while back, I can’t remember exactly what show I was watching, but I remember they asked a little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her answer was to be famous. The “celebrity” bug not only bites adults but children as well. Our young girls are being influenced by the women on television that become known for outrageous clothing, and antics. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with being well known. Proverbs 18:16 says “A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.” But being famous, getting attention and becoming well known shouldn’t be our primary focus.
To me, Proverbs 31:30 is a powerful scripture. I believe it speaks volumes to women in regards to where our focus should be. The first part says, “Charm is deceitful…”. In some of the other translations for this scripture, the word favor is used in the place of charm. Favor can mean to gain approval or acceptance. When we do things to get attention, we are searching for acceptance. Jesus said in Luke 6:26 “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, For so did their fathers to the false prophets.” Wanting to be accepted is deceptive.Posted under Bible by admin
