Deborah was dressed in a flowing gown reaching her feet. She also had her head covered with a turban. She was trying to get home earlier than the clouds’ decision to pour down rain.
In the midst of the evening rush, she bumped into a man who smiled at her. She didn’t seem to notice as she hurriedly walked past.
Few minutes later, there was a tap on her shoulder. She turned around wondering who it was only for her to discover it was the young man she bumped into earlier.
Wondering what this was all about, Deborah stood there looking into the face of this young man waiting for him to say something.
But to her surprise, he greeted her in the Islamic way. ‘I hope you are not married as I would not want to be having an affair with a married woman’, he said.
With disgust she blurted out ‘I am a Christian’!
Why was Deborah disgusted?
Why did the young man assume he knew her?
Was there something about her that was off?
All these sayings of ‘I know how I serve my God’, ‘the physical appearance does not matter, it is the heart that matters’, and so on is not scriptural.
Do you wonder why some type of men are coming your way?
Are you amazed at the type of ladies in your circle?
It’s either you are in the wrong location or you are sending the wrong signals.
No matter what, who you are should reflect on the outside.
Luke 6:43-46 (NLT) Luke 6:43-46 (NLT)
“A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit.
A tree is identified by its fruit. Figs are never gathered from thornbushes, and grapes are not picked from bramble bushes.
A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
“So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?
May God grant us understanding.
