The Pig’s Jewelry

16 Dec

The Pig’s Jewelry…

Proverbs 11:22 says, “As a ring of gold in a pig’s nose, so is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion.” Picture it, a pig with earrings and a nose ring, lipstick, rouge, eyeliner, false eyelashes, powdered nose, necklace.

The truth is deeper than anything that only applies to women. The point is, your life is as a gold ring. In salvation, it’s priceless because you’re made in the image of God.

It’s meant to be something beautiful, but if you give yourself to sinfulness, greed, lust, anger or selfish ambition, whatever you’re degrading something meant to be beautiful. You’re degrading yourself. You become what you give yourself to.

A ring given to a pig will end up in the mud. A life given to sin will end up in the mud. If you give yourself to something low, you’ll be lowered. Yet if you give yourself to something higher, then your life will be lifted up.

Give yourself to what’s pure, true, holy. Give yourself to Yeshua, Jesus, the Messiah and your life will be lifted up. It’ll become the treasure it was meant to be and not a ring in a pig’s nose.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8

Treat your life, your being, as a precious vessel – don’t give it to any sin or anything that is not precious and of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
