"The Heart Reflects a Person." - Proverbs 27-19Firstly, I am sorry ladies, today I just had to post this picture. Not because of what I have to say about the nature and role of Miley Cyrus's everyday life and negative influence on young girls. More because of the looks from the girls in the background. It displeases me to no end, the looks on all their little faces of such awe, adoration and envy. Like Miley is all there is in life and to be like her would be complete and utter fulfillment. Of course, I was a young girl once and liked singers like Madonna, Cindy Lauper and Janet Jackson. But, had I fully understood what I was watching or listening to, I would have had a chance to make a better decision.(I must say that I am by no means putting blame on these women, but merely pointing out the lack of positive behavior they bring to the media.) We have to purposely be teaching our girls about the REAL purpose, the REAL fulfiller, the REAL God. To many girls watch women like Miley, Lady Gaga, Katie Perry, etc and want to be like them and look like them. This in turn can lead to low self esteem, anorexia/bulimia or more negative acts. We need to show them that it's okay and a good thing to be different, because that is what God intended. We need to be teaching them modesty and self importance.
"I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety..." 1 Timothy 2:9
Parents of this generation have become much more passive when it comes to guarding their young girls innocence and virtue, it has become the thing that “old people” do. There used to be a time when a young Christian girl was protected and guarded from anything that could corrupt her sense of virtue, but today, she is allowed to watch anything and anyone on television. She is allowed to wear the most ungodly types of clothing. It is hard because peer pressure is real and so is the fact that designers no longer design modest clothing for girls.
Talk with your young girl about peer pressure, negatives influences and what the Bible has to say about these issues. Pray with them to overcome and to have a desire to be more like Jesus and less like the world. You are blessed sweet Sister in Christ to have such a beautiful and precious young lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
