Your Body is a Temple

Today I’m an angry woman. I’m so angry that I cannot even lift my head to give another gaze to this world. I would say I am ashamed but it’s pointless. I am very angry that we were not created with the same mindsets and to make it worse we don’t entertain the same things. I’m angry that I have sisters out there who do not value their precious bodies and as a result tarnishing our image as WOMEN.
 
My anger stems from things that I see, hear and read every single day of my life about women and it really makes me question what this world is coming to. I can’t comprehend HOW and WHY we became so reckless.
 
The question that has always been striking my mind is how is it that a person who has grandparents, parents and siblings take a nude picture of themselves and share it with whoever they choose to? Why would you even do it in the first place? I just don’t get it! Pardon me but I am gonna have to call a spade a spade here, you sisters of mine are a disgrace to human nature and I bet you know it too.
 
Firstly, you are enemies of progress! Do you have any idea of how much time, sacrifices and energy some decent women put in bettering our image? We are out here fighting for gender equality and you’re out there downgrading us. How for heaven sake do you expect men to value and respect us if you are doing these things? Secondly, you are the reason men don’t respect us anymore because if a man is used to seeing you half naked or receiving completely nude pictures from you they would think we all do the same.
 
Now let me also warn you narrow minded men out there that we are not all the same and it’s better to not even attempt it. Do you ever realize the harm you are causing to us? Do you know that you are destroying our priceless human worth? Do you know that you cheapen our worth? Do you?
 
Sister girl let me remind you that you are beautiful just the way you are – even more beautiful when you are fully dressed. You do not have to go naked to be rated as beautiful or modern or whatsoever.
 
Do not buy into the lies of the world that sexual freedom is the best route to go. It’s a dead end road that will only leave you hungry for more. Instead, use your beautiful body to glorify God by placing value on your nakedness and saving your sexual allure for one man.
 
In fact my dear sister, your body is more than just the beautiful artwork of God – it’s actually the temple of God. “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body” (1 Cor. 6:19-21).
 
Therefore, let us all treat our bodies as our temple. We should treat our bodies with great respect and dignity because the Holy Spirit lives inside of us. By respecting God’s temple through pure actions and dress, we bring honour to God.
Brothers out there – a woman’s body is beautiful and wonderful and mysterious. Please respect it by respecting her as an individual with hopes and dreams and experiences and emotions and longings. Encourage her confidence. And STOP asking for her nudes because she is weaker. Women are not weaker than men. They are not the weaker sex. They are just the other sex.
 
I’m not telling you to not look at women but the opposite. I’m telling you to see women. Really see them. Not just with your eyes, but with your heart. Until then please help me get rid of this anger…
 
Womandla!
