Like a Gold Ring in a Pig's Snout

Would It Be Wrong To 'Missionary Date' Keira?
Were you dazzled by all of the glitz, glamour and excitement of this week's Academy Awards? Me neither. Rather, I was reminded again of why I don't watch TV. So why did I post a picture of Keira Knightley at the Awards on our blog? A desperate attempt to improve our blog's aesthetics? A shameless ploy to increase our readership? Neither. I swear.

Rather, it is an occassion to remind ourselves of what we are looking at and what we value. No doubt, Hollywood offers us scores of such beautiful women to gaze upon. Genuinely beautiful- not just "beautiful" in that plastic, fake tan, fake-everything California way. However, it is good to remember just who these people really are:

Like a gold ring in a pig's snout
is a beautiful woman without discretion.

-Proverbs 11:22

Not only do most of these women not know God, they don't even feign an attempt at availing themselves of wisdom and virtue from common grace or the light of natural revelation. I've had goldfish that last longer than most of their marriages. That is, of course, if they even bother to marry one from the string of guys they've slept with. They hire PR people to cover up, defend, or explain away their bulimia/alcohol/drug abuse problems that get exposed. They see nothing wrong with being paid to take off their clothes in front of a movie camera ("the director said there was artistic merit to the scene!"). And most of them are leftist wackos who thought John Kerry was their messiah to save us all from Bush.

What Solomon is trying to teach us in this Proverb is that while physical beauty is truly to be desired in a woman, it avails nothing in a foolish woman. It is a waste of beauty. Indeed, the beauty becomes ugliness without godly propriety, just as the ring does in a pig's snout.

  • Amen! I have three very attractive daughters, and this is a verse I have quoted to them since they were very young (they usually roll their eyes, or mimic me when I quote it, they have heard it so many times!). My youngest is now 20, and to my grief and dismay they do not have a personal relationship with the Lord. Don't get me wrong, they are wonderful and we are all very close but they are drawn to the things of the world. I just keep praying and confessing Philippians 1:6. What else can I do other than that, besides being a godly exmple for them? Anyway, back to Proverbs 11:22...I think this verse correlates with Mark 8:36, Matthew 16:26, and Luke 9:25 - "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" We can have beauty wealth, material possessions, power, and/or a great career, but with out God in our lives it is all in vain. "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."
    2 Corinthians 4:17-19
