I once visited a local detention center and witnessed some female inmates attempting to woo a male guard. These ladies seemed to know all the right moves and really turned on the charm to get what they wanted. As I witnessed these women trying to entice an officer to do their bidding, I could not help but think of Prov. 31:30: “Grace is deceitful, and beauty is vain; (But) a woman that feareth Jehovah, she shall be praised.”
The wise man knew charm can be deceptive; hopefully the guards at this facility are wise enough to realize this truth. The wise man also said beauty does not last.
Good looks, charm, money, and fame can help people carve out a pretty nice life for themselves. In the end what really matters is whether or not we are right with God.
Are you, dear reader, right with Him?
