Purity Prayer Challenge Day 3
Hello! I think as women we sometimes tend to blame men for their actions but won't hold ourselves accountable. You are probably wondering where I am going with this, right? What I am talking about is setting boundaries! To protect your purity, you have to set boundaries where no man can go! If you are dating someone or about to date someone, here are some tips. The number one thing is to set the boundary of NO SEX! You have to put that out upfront and if he doesn't abide, get rid of him! Any REAL CHRISTIAN man is going to respect your values. Remember in 1 Corinthians 7:3, God reserved sex for husbands and wives. Secondly, we as women can set boundaries by the way we dress. We need to let these men that we are not for sale lol. How you dress tells so much about you! I'm not talking about being covered from head to toe. I am talking about wearing a skirt that actually comes to your knees or not wearing a low-cut tank top. The best judge is to ask, "If God was here right now would I feel comfortable wearing this?". In 1 Corinthians 16:9, it states "Do you not know our bodies are temples belonging to God". Lastly, we need to set boundaries by where we go. What I mean by this is we do not need to go to our boyfriends house late at night after dinner, we don't need to be going to the club if our hormones cannot handle it lol, and our boyfriend does not need to be coming to our place late at night either! I hope these tips will help each of you to protect your purity. Dear God, help us to strengthen our boundaries! Help us to recognize where we are weak! Give us the strength to remove any guys that are not willing to respect out boundaries! Help us to choose the right outfits to wear each day to protect our purity! Thank you Lord for not giving up on us! In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
