Woman to Woman

 

By Lois Evans

Today’s Christian women are being pressed on every side to conform to standards of this world.  Unique opportunities in the areas of education and business have  opened doors to women that were not available even half a century ago.  While on the one hand Christian women should enjoy the benefits of these opportunities, we must be careful not to let this world system rearrange our biblical priorities.

Our priority as women ought always be to maintain a vital personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  One of my favorite passages of Scripture is found in the book of Proverbs.  This verse gives women the greatest guidance we could ever receive.  It says, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”  (Proverbs 31:30)

This “fear” is awe-filed respect that flows out of an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ.  Our careers, hobbies, and even our degrees must never overrule our daily intimacy and interaction with our Savior.  An ongoing awareness of His presence and a devotion to His Word will give us stability, confidence, and direction as we pursue the various ministries God calls us into during each season of our lives.

So in whatever season you find yourself, Jesus Christ will give you the peace and victory you need to accomplish all that He has for you to do.

    I like what you’ve written here. Proverbs 31:30 is perfect…just perfect.
