VIRTUE - because you're worth it

Just finished watching: Virtue: For Such a Time as This (Esther 4:14)

Today, virtue is not valued as it ought to be. Today, you see women on music videos wearing next to nothing and, on the other end of the scale, you hear about women focusing on their careers rather than getting married and having children.

Today, people are so outwardly focused. And it's really no wonder with the media coming in at us from every angle. Newspapers, radio, magazines, TV, the internet, peer pressure - it can be difficult to see what we really need to be focusing on: Christ.

It's like what a friend told me: "If he doesn't love you regardless of what you look like, then he doesn't really love you."

Now, I'm not saying that it's bad to take care of your outward appearance. It's certainly no crime to be beautiful.

I'm just trying to point out that in today's society, a lot of women just don't seem to value what it means to be a woman anymore.

From the way I see things, true beauty is not in the way your face looks, naturally or otherwise. It's not in being lean and toned. It's not in the clothes and accessories you wear.

A woman's true beauty can be seen in MOTHERHOOD.

So be virtuous ladies because you're worth it.

  1. An excellent post, Amy! I could not have stated this any clearer :-)

    Actually, my cousins and I were discussing this topic last night when we went bowling. You know how they sometimes put those inappropriate music videos on the screen during bowling? Well, we were discussing how about 10 years ago, you wouldn't see such video clips in public, only if you're watching TV really late of a night. It is sad how virtue is no longer seen as the "in" thing, even though having it is so vitally essential.

    I also agree when you say that Christ should be our main focus. If we focus our goals and plans on Christ, everything will fall into its right perspective(career, motherhood, etc).
