§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Isaiah 4: 16-23 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Differing Views But One Goal.  Topics:  2 at end.

“’Moreover, Yahweh said, ‘Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with outstretched necks and flirting eyes, walking to trip as they go, jingling ornaments on their feet;
therefore the Lord brings sores on the crown of the head of the women of Zion, and Yahweh will make their scalps bald.’
In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, the headbands, the crescent necklaces, the earrings, the bracelets, the veils, the headdresses, the ankle chains, the sashes, the perfume bottles, the charms, the signet rings, the nose rings, the fine robes, the capes, the cloaks, the purses, the hand mirrors, the fine linen garments, the tiaras, and the shawls.”  WEB (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

The Lord spoke against the women of Israel for flaunting their jewels and clothing and being flirtatious.  They were using objects to enhance their beauty in unbecoming ways.  But we also know that these objects such as bracelets, linen garments, tiaras, and such, can be used of the Lord if presented in a proper manner.

There are different Christian approaches to style and its presentation.  There are some who consider a simple look for women to be the most wholesome, most enduring look.  Others want to be as “in style” and up-to-date as possible.  Both types of looks can draw others to the Christian way.  Most Christian ladies are probably somewhere in between these two views.

But the point is, however we decide to dress and decorate our selves, do it with the Lord in mind; and do not flaunt.  Just wear our clothing and accessories for what they are and not for attracting the attention of others, be it some neat fellow or another lady for whom we want to “strut our stuff.”

Men also can be cautioned here.  Carry a nice timepiece; but don’t linger it when checking time to be impressive!!

This may seem simple, but sometimes it really is not.  Christians can have the temptation to be haughty or flaunty just as those ladies in the Old Testament.  It’s just a matter of where our heart really lies; and we hope it is . . . first, with the Lord in first place – and also, secondly . . . with a mindset that cares about how others around us view us.  If we’re “too much” for others to bear, as it was with the Lord in this scripture, then we are just “too much” for our own good . . . and for the good of those whom we might reach for the Lord.

Lord, help us to know how to present ourselves to others in order that they may see You in us.  Help us, in our world that places so much emphasis on looks and possessions, to remember that You are our best jewel of all . . . and that our looks should draw others to you.  Help us to present ourselves as Yours when we speak to others about LIFE.


Topics:  Pray for the insight to know how to win others to You, Lord, through our appearance and attitude.
Kansas Family Policy Council and others like it to present LIFE issues as very important.
