Quoting Quiverfull: Your Body Is Only For Your Future Husband’s Eyes?

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Body Is Only For Your Future Husband’s Eyes? June 11, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Beecher Proch from Girl Defined – Guy Thoughts: Come on Girl, Keep it Modest (thanks to Bruce Gerencser for posting about Beecher Good catch!)

Editor’s note: Lots and lots of slut-shaming/women-blaming at the original link even if the author admits that men at 100% responsible for where they put their gaze. Guessing he has no one around to yell ‘Nike’ for him to look at his shoes when some half-dressed temptress crosses his path. He fails to realize that no matter how much a pretty girl, or any girl, covers up there’s always going to be a squad of guys sitting in the pews popping pocket rockets when they go by. It’s NORMAL!!!

Think about this too: your body is for your husband’s eyes.

It shouldn’t be used as eye-candy for just anyone. Proverbs 11:22 says, “Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion.”Discretion is “the quality of behaving or speaking in such a way as to avoid causing offense or revealing private information.”

Wow! Did you catch that?

Discretion happens when a person chooses not to reveal private information. It’s so easy for a little extra skin or those short shorts to be a distraction for a guy. A lot of what girls today are showing of their bodies was never meant to be shared with the world.

Listen to what Matthew 18:7 says. “Woe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes.” Wow. Do you, as a Christian, want to be responsible for dressing in a way that might tempt a guy pursuing godliness? I hope not!
