Faithful Fridays~Discretion

 Faithful Fridays is a day where christians can share there faith, a song, a bible verse, a bible study that you are working through or anything that God has put on your heart to share. You can go to Joy's blog Doodle Bug to get the rules and picture.
 Today I would like to share a verse that is really good and what it means.

As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout,
So is a lovely woman who lacks discretion.

Proverbs 11:22

Now who would want to see a ring in a pigs snout!?! Wouldn't that just be ugly? That is what it is saying. As beautiful and pretty as a woman can be if she doesn't have discretion she can get to be pretty bad looking.
Discretion means:
  • To judge what is correct and proper
  • United with caution
  • Prudent (Which means cautious in determining on any action or line of conduct)
  • Guarded
We as young women can show discretion by:
  • Dressing modestly not attracting attention
  • Having friendships that will not draw you away from God
  • The way we talk
  • Being careful not to flirt with boys because they could get the wrong feeling about you
  • By guarding the movies we watch, the music we listen to and the books we read. They should not contradict the Bible.
I hope that God will help us young women to show more discretion as we grow up to be women.

God bless,
