Though we live in So Cal, Selena and I are’t from here.We’re from Washington (the Seattle side) where it rains . For me, and I assume for other men, this type of looking is rooted something gross: sin.Years later in my US government class in high school, I watched Bill Clinton stand trial for lying about his numerous sexual interactions with Monica Lewinsky.Both of these men marked my youth, shaping the way I perceived men in positions of power. When a pretty lady passes us on the sidewalk, something inside drives us to look – once, twice, even thrice, or more. For a Christian guy – i.e., a man who follows Christ wholeheartedly and seeks to live with integrity as a result – this desire presents problems.We live in sunny Southern California where covering up is culturally optional.If there’s one place in the country where people are more “appearance aware”, it’s Southern California.
When Becky was invited to lunch by a man she met at a bookstore, she was excited.He continued to develop his relationship with God, then asked her out again. When a woman is authentic, she calls a man to a higher standard by her very nature. Every woman yearns for a man who is going to protect and cherish her.Men are naturally attracted to her authentic beauty and integrity. My question for you is: are you conducting yourself in such a way to attract a virtuous man?My first lesson on the dangerous pitfalls of sexual sin and subsequent public scandal came one ordinary day in 1988.I arrived home from church to witness my dad sitting in his comfy chair, mesmerized by something on the television.
