White As Snow
Today I went to a very unique wedding. Not only was it an outdoor wedding in Virginia on a cold January day- but there was 5 inches of snow on the ground and it continued to snow during the ceremony!
More unique than their winter wonderland wedding, was my friends’ decision to save their first kiss for this special day. In a culture where immorality runs rampant, the mere suggestion that someone would wait for their wedding day to kiss (not to mention other things), seems ridicules.
When the word purity is mentioned in our society, the connotations are stronger of that of a bottled water commercial than what the Bible would define it to be. As young Christian women, God has called us not only to live lives of purity, but also to be examples in a culture that is ever straying from God’s design for love, romance and marriage.
“Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.”
