Quotable: Women of God

7/21/2014


Last year, when I was just about to graduate high school, I heard this quote ^ for the first time at a little "Intro-to-Relief Socity-night" thing, and ever since then it has really stuck with me. 
I mostly love it because of how true it is. Especially that first line: women of God can never be like women of the world.
I don't think very many people like to admit it, but it isn't possible to be a woman of God while giving in to the demands of the world.
There is a big, big difference in what the world sees as acceptable and what God sees as acceptable.
Women of the world see money, perfect hair, expensive makeup, being perfectly skinny, instagram followers, success with guys, and "being hot" all as ways of measuring how valuable their lives are.
It's not to say that those things are necessarily bad, but they do not at all contribute to the value of ones life.
In all honesty, women who think like this really are a dime a dozen.
Women of God know that what really is valuable are the things in this quote. Kindness, faith, purity, etc.
I have such a hard time remembering this and not getting caught up wanting to be more like the women on the fitness category on Pinterest.
Be different, in a good way :)
Anyways, that is the end of my ramblings.
