Beautiful, and Unavailable

A Christian woman should seek to be two things in her public appearance — beautiful and (to all but one) unavailable. One of the fundamental mistakes that women make, when they are falling away from a biblical understanding of femininity, is that of confusing the effects created by signals of availability with the effects of beauty. But this is a drastic mistake. Beauty attracts certainly, in a certain way, but so does availability attract — in another way entirely. When women are signaling availability, they ought not to tally up the results as though they were coming from the beauty column. Because Christian women know that general availability is prohibited in Scripture, they are the ones most prone to make this category mistake. They adopt signals from the world, and try to change the meaning of those signals in their heart. But it doesnt matter what those signals mean down inside her own heart.
