Don't Throw It Away!
While growing up, each of us learned the value of a coin. We all were taught that a penny is equal to one cent, a nickel equal to 5 cents, a dime equal to ten, and a quarter, 25 cents. As we do our grocery shopping or retail therapy (as i often like to do) most of us are able to determine what's worth it and what isn't. Sorry, but i refuse to pay 75 dollars for a t-shirt at Express when I just saw the same one at H&M for 25 dollars. We weigh the value of items every day, so why aren't we doing the same thing with ourselves?
We enter these relationships, most of the time they're "situationships" and allow people to treat us like we're worth nothing. We allow them to say things to us that we don't confront, do things to us that we do not like, we allow them to hurt our feelings, we run off and tell our girlfriends (which isn't a problem), but we go back to the same person who hurt us, who caused us so much confusion. Why? Do we not realize that we are worth so much more than what we're settling for. First of all God is not a God of of confusion, so if we're dealing with a man who seems confused or is confusing us, hunty it's time to go!
Matthew 7:6 says, "Don't give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls to pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them and then tear you to pieces". This verse is everything! Why are we wasting our time by giving our bodies to a man who is not committed. We were bought at a price, so that means were worth something, and trust me its not a few drinks on U Street or dinners at The Cheesecake Factory (even though that is my fave restaurant) I feel that way too many women give themselves to men physically and emotionally who are in no way interested in anything serious,and then when our time is up we feel discouraged, broken hearted, and let down. We'll stay up half the night (maybe more) crying on our pillows wishing that things had been different. You've been torn to pieces emotionally and mentally. Thinking about someone who most likely forgot about you the moment you left their bedroom.
Well guess what? Things could have been different if we would've just focused on recognizing our worth! I would never buy a Tiffany & Co. necklace and then come home and wrap it around the neck of my dog. You can't give a preschooler 100 dollars to take to school. Why? Because they don't recognize the worth of the item they have. I don't know of a man who would go and purchase an expensive ring and place it on just any woman's finger.Nope! He gives it to the woman that he finds worth it! If he cant see the worth, then he doesn't deserve you, and in order to be worthy ladies we have to act as such too.
We have to start giving ourselves to the guy who deserves it, and when we meet him we'll know. Don't give your pearls to anyone unless they're worth it. Pigs and dogs don't count! Be worth it because you are!
