A Gold Ring in a Pig’s Nose

I saw a picture today that reminded me of this verse:

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

The picture featured an attractive woman cozied up to a handsome man.

With no apparent shame on her part.

Too bad.

I’ve seen lots of pictures like that. And far worse.

Too bad.

So how about this next verse?

“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised” (Proverbs 31:30).

Lady, don’t cozy up to a man who’s not your husband.

Guard your virtue. Protect your reputation. Honor God. (Of course, if you don’t fear the Lord, this post likely means little to you. But the proverb still applies.)

Men, what’s your role in this?

And what type of woman do you praise?

And would you enable or encourage or entice a woman to be “as a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout” with you?
