Outward adorning

 

 

1. Brother, am I wrong to wear earrings, bracelets, necklaces and other jewelry?

 

 

Yes, sister in the Lord, you are wrong, because the Word of God forbids the women who profess godliness to wear such things. For the apostle Paul says: “I desire therefore that …. The women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing” (1 Timothy 2:8,9 – NKJV), and Peter says: “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes” (1 Peter 3:3 – NIV).

Sister, you must understand that all these jewelry make the woman attractive, seductive and haughty, and you as a daughter of God must not be attractive nor seductive nor haughty. Do you want to attract men’s attention? Do you want to be haughty? I don’t think, if your really love the Lord.

Therefore, take off your useless ornaments and throw them away. Do not hesitate to do it, do it immediately and you will be blessed. I remind you that Sarah, whose daughter you are, did not wear any jewelry because she feared God (1 Peter 3:5).
