When God created birds, He gave male birds bright, colorful feathers to attract females. Girl birds don’t work to attract boy birds; boy birds work to attract girl birds.
We’ve got it all wrong today. Females wear skimpy to non-existent clothing, color their hair, pierce their bodies, and paint their faces to attract males. Listen up, women: we should learn from the birds.
I saw a young girl yesterday wearing such exaggerated makeup that she looked like a cat. Her eye shadow was so thick and dark that it hid her eyebrows. She wore a short skirt that barely covered her underwear, a top cut so low that her boobs almost popped out, and the expression of a lost puppy on the side of the road.
Women need to reverse the media hype about attracting men and make men work for it. Take it from the birds. Today’s expectations about how women should look, and the pressure for women to hunt down men as if they were prey and capture them is a recipe for mental illness. It makes women feel unattractive, unloved, and unappreciated because they can never live up to the unrealistic expectations. We should learn from the birds.
In Jesus’ time, when a man asked a woman to marry her, he went out and built her a house, then collected his bride. He worked for it and she felt respected, loved and protected. When Abraham wanted a wife for his son Isaac, he sent camels loaded with treasure to the young woman and her family. Isaac loved his wife Rebekah and she felt loved, cherished and appreciated. Isaac worked for it.
The Bible upholds the best image for a woman to have of herself: Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the LORD shall be praised. (Proverbs 31:30) Time cannot ruin beauty that is on the inside, nor does it require plucking, painting, pricking, or pruning to perfect.
We should learn from the birds.

Love this, absolute words of wisdom! May God reward you for this wonderful post! 🙂
Thanks. It broke my heart to see that poor lost girl looking out into the city for love, when God loves her just where she is.
I wish every girl understood this! Every girl and boy is loved by God and God’s love alone is sufficient, we can’t fill in that gap which belongs to God with anyone else
You are so absolutely right. Thank you. God bless you. May He fill in all the gaps.
I read this a few days ago, Steph, but wasn’t able to comment at the time. I so agree with all of what you say! Sooo true!!
Thanks, Val. Have a great rest of the week. We’re just back in town.
I laughed out loud at “recipe for mental illness”. I’m with the birds!
Thanks, Victoria! “Bird Brain” should be a compliment and not an insult…birds are amazingly intelligent.
I love this!
Thanks so much! It’s all about Jesus.
Amen to that!
