Holy Ladies

“I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ…” (Rom 1.18) NOR am I ashamed of the holy mothers, sisters, and daughters with their uncut, simple hair and their plain, modest dresses without sparkle, sequins, or flash. The wearing of “…gold or pearls or costly array” (1Ti 2.9) is not limited to rings or necklace (Hint: it’s not “wrong ‘cause it’s round”). Holy ladies (or sensible sinners, for that matter) do not need tinselry or glitter on their dresses, nor gold in their hair.

How did all this begin?

Were wine, women, and song

The start of his wrong?

No.  “His way” was his first sin.

(Luk 15.12)

Are you a ten-talented man?

Thank God, keep busy, and do not shirk great responsibility. Are you a five-talented man? Be grateful, use your talents, don’t dodge responsibility. Are you a one-talented man? Give God thanks, work the talent, and fulfill responsibility. The multitude-talent man could wish for a lighter load – don’t. God knows what you can do. Do it. The one-talented man looks (if he’s not careful) at a five talent guy and covets. Don’t do that either. Each man is His Lord’s trusted servant. He didn’t misguide anyone.

The man who recognizes his Lord’s wisdom and loves His wisdom, can be fulfilled and content.
