If you ask my friends they will tell you I’m a looker with sexy taste. At least that’s what I think they’ll say. (Laughs) But to be honest , I know my dress is no where near modest. I like to show legs and show off my curves. Most the time my dresses and skirts only come mid thigh and they are fitted. I like to steal the attention when I come in the room because I know I look good. But these things are frowned upon. Especially because you are suppose to represent Jehovah in all walks of life. The bible tell women to dress modest and with soundness of mind. Not to be flashy and showy, which I normally am.
I love to have a good time. After dealing with classes, working, homework and life’s stresses, I love to let lose and have fun. What’s a better way to let your hair down then partying and over drinking? I haven’t found one. Plus, I’m in college! I’m expected to have fun while I’m young, childless and can afford to be selfish. But the bible doesn’t have the same view as me. Partying and over drinking is not a light matter. The bible warns against it multiple times.
Galatians 5:21 “21 envy, drunkenness,+ wild parties, and things like these.+ I am forewarning you about these things, the same way I already warned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit God’s Kingdom.+“
Proverbs 23:20 “20 Do not be among those who drink too much wine, Among those who gorge themselves on meat”
We live in a world where there’s always something new out. I’m guilty of being in snared by materialism. Materialism is the desire or yearning for more material possessions. It is being preoccupied with material things rather than spiritual riches.
With me being young material things mean a lot. What you have makes you look better, especially to your peers. But what is the bible’s view on matters?
The bible states in 1 John 2:15-16 “15 Do not love either the world or the things in the world.+ If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him;+16 because everything in the world—the desire of the flesh+and the desire of the eyes+ and the showy display of one’s means of life—does not originate with the Father, but originates with the world.”
