I found THIS interesting and realized it merits a Sunday Faith Blog. Another apparently high-profile “honor killing” in Pakistan of a rising ‘star’ by her brother who wished she’d stop “show business.” Here’s the quote that caught my eye:
“Earlier this year she vowed to perform a striptease if Pakistan’s cricket team beat India at the World T20, though they later lost.
“People are going crazy — especially girls. I get so many calls where they tell me I’m their inspiration and they want to be like me,” she told AFP after posting a provocative selfie on Valentine’s Day.”
So, those young girls want to be like a stripteaser, apparently? She’s (was, before her brother murdered her) their ‘inspiration?’
SO, how’s this fit Z’s weekly Sunday Faith blog? We should be praying for women around the world that they don’t feel they need to striptease to feel like a woman or bring attention to the plight of difficult restrictions put on them by the faith of that country. Or their own family.
Pray for our young women who aren’t getting good messages from their teachers or their friends or, certainly, our own media about their sexuality, their good sexual health, their decency, their lack of knowledge that their body is the Temple of God.
Talk to them please, older women….advise them, love them and teach them;
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;”
I Corinthians 6:19
Have a beautiful Sunday…..Women Geezers, observe a young woman (a daughter, granddaughter, young girl at your church?) and decide if you might want to just talk with her, hear her thoughts…….teach her the implications of that I Corinthians verse if you feel led. God bless you all!
