Say What?!?!

I was doing devotions the other day and I ran across this Proverb... It STOPPED me in my tracks, made me laugh... Is it strange that when I read the Bible I laugh, a lot? Usually at my self being reflected in the pages before me... but this time it was a whole vivid picture that was so bluntly and eloquently put... awesome...

So, here it is.

A beautiful woman who lacks discretion     
      is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout.
              Proverbs 11:22

Havent you ever met the most beautiful woman that airs her dirty laundry, speaks poorly of her man, or dresses without any sense of modesty... I dont come across them as much as I used to when I was working at the psych hospital... (I will save that for another post)

But I have. I couldnt really put words to the feeling that I would get when I would be around them... I just knew what I felt. I felt like my whole body was cringing...

And here it was... the perfect words were here all along.


PS. Does anyone else laugh when they read the Bible? Or am I crazy?... Wait, don't answer that.


  1. haha I've totally heard that proverb before!

  2. yup! gold ring/pigs snout... so NOT a good look!
    VERY cringy!!
