A JEWEL OF GOLD IN A SWINE’S SNOUT

May 26th, 2011

 

 

 

“As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.” Proverbs 11:22 .

 


Few men can resist a beautiful woman. The only answer is found in the Proverbs; He must avoid her house and listen to wisdom’s cry.

If the fair woman without discretion could look at herself in the mirror, she would see a swine with an ornament of gold in its snout staring back at her. What a fitly description of every woman who is empty of God’s grace and wisdom on the inside.

Beauty is not a sin; it is an adornment of God to be used for His glory. How revolting most of the beautiful women are, when seen as God sees them. As the swine has no interest or concern for the jewel of gold, it plows through the mud and mire, so the woman lacking in the inward adornment has no knowledge of her own state. Many a beautiful form enshrines a revolting mind. The garb that most young women wear today, advertise that a vain mind dwells within.

Young woman, fill your inward soul on the wisdom of God and you will have true and lasting beauty. Look in the mirror and acknowledge what you see. Is a swine looking back at you? “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30 . “As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.” Proverbs 11:22 .
