What I think many women today believe they can do is change men. While change can be good for many reasons and for different circumstances, it is not our duty as women to change them. Only God can do that. Before you continue, I am not saying that every man lusts over a woman once he see’s her. There is such a thing as self-control.
We as women (sisters in Christ) have the privilege of being ladies. We should help our men who are first our brothers in Christ and uplift instead of tear down( and you can tear down by posting a seductive photo of your body on the internet!). Any man could falter by taking just a glance at it because then he could lust over you, over every inch of your body that you posted. And not just photos that you post, but when you go out– anywhere. Just the other day I saw a woman walking around with a half cut shirt revealing her stomach and 80% of her cleavage and shorts cut off right below her bottom area. She may think she’s going out and having the good care free life, but what she doesn’t realize is that she may have had hundreds of men lusting over her body.
“But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” (Matthew 5: 27-28).
I think that as women we can help our men by the way we dress, speak and uplift them. Have some faith in them. And be careful with how much of yourself you reveal. As women in Christ we should be doing everything we can to help our brothers in Christ stand tall as Warriors for God and not fall. One of the things I’ve struggled with as a woman has been having faith in our men of this generation (not just for what I’ve been through personally but in general) and not giving them enough props to the good that they do and are. God has worked on me. In all honesty, how would your future husband feel with how much of yourself you’ve (flaunted) for men that have lustful eyes and were not him? Brothers, remember before you lust over the woman in the grocery shop that she is first your sister in Christ. And visa verse as well. Women do it too; men are first your brothers in Christ– know that before you lust after them as well. Knowing this can help us not lust at all.
“So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another” (Romans 12:5). We can glorify God through many ways. One of them I believe is throwing down the seductive blouse and wearing that normal T so that you can help a brother in Christ!
