Why is it that, in the Bible, a lack of wisdom is always correlated with a sexual woman? The whole “Be a good women of Christ, don’t tempt, don’t be lustful” theme has been popping up a lot in my Bible reading’s and I can’t help but think it’s for a more divine purpose. Like He’s trying to teach me something about wisdom. Or maybe sex, but I really think it’s wisdom.
Take today’s reading, Proverbs 9:13-18-- the woman Folly is loud; she is undisciplined and without knowledge. She sits at the door of her house, on a seat at the highest point of the city, calling out to those who pass by, who go straight on their way. “Let all who are simple come in here!” she says to those who lack judgment. “Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious!” But little do they know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depth of the grave. Wow. Just wow.
A women who lacks wisdom is loud, displaying the fact that she is ignorant for everyone to see, but also doing things in the dark. She displays her ignorance in FULL VIEW of everyone!!!! Everyone can see that she has no knowledge, but still some are taken under by her because she is sensual. Awesome. That’s just awesome. Way to go girl! Why? Why is it so hard for a women to be a strong leader and why is it so hard for her to gain wisdom and stay away from immorality? WHY???? Some women I previously thought very highly of I have lost some respect for. They just give in on the basis that knowledge and wisdom was not convenient at the time. They would rather sin in the dark then display any degree of self control. And we wonder why God doesn’t give us the thing’s we desire. We completely lack knowledge.
Best movie quote ever... "You see, none of us chose our end really. A king may move a man, a father may claim a son. But remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convinient at the time. This will not suffice. Remember that."
Virtue was not convinient at the time? This my firends will never do.
