What Do Your Eyes Say?

What are your eyes saying. Facebook Profile Picture Challenge! Warning-not for the weak of mind or heart!
Sometimes I see photos on Facebook from nice Christian girls who would never dress or behave immodestly, but who seem to be trying to imitate expressions or poses they’ve seen in worldly magazines or movies. Ladies, think about what you want to communicate! What are your eyes saying?

Paul tells us in 1 Timothy 2:9 that women are to “Adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety…” Anyone know what shamefacedness means? It literally means bashful. Now, what kind of look did the Proverbs 7 woman have when she was trying to entice the young man? Aside from having the attire of a harlot, Scripture says that she had an impudent face. Impudent. Do you know what that means? My Bible software defines it as shameless. Brazen. The very opposite of shamefacedness.

I challenge you: Go through your photos and compare them to the light of Scripture!

I took the challenge and went through my profile pictures on Facebook… I was a little discouraged and sad at first after deleting 3 or 4 of my pictures that I thought were provoking or haughty, but then I remembered a verse my pastor taught this Suday: Joel 2:13
“So rend your heart, and not your garments;
Return to the Lord your God,
For He is gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and of great kindness;
And He relents from doing harm.” 
If you recognize sin and “rend your heart” God will be just and merciful and He will love you no less! He is a God of love and Grace!  Will you take the challenge? ~Lisa
