Considering that things of the sexual nature disappoint the Lord, we must try not to tempt ourselves or our fellow male Christians.
As girls, we have an influence over the males in our life. Without knowing it, we are constantly tempting them with what we say, how we dress, and most importantly, exactly just how “available” we seem.
I have a friend who saw no problem with sitting in guys’ laps as a tease. She saw no fault in wearing low cut shirts, push-up bras, and short-shorts. She even found no error in joking about the many sexual things she had done and or could do. Through all of these actions though, she was tempting the males in her life. She was persuading them to fail.
But this angers the Lord.
- “42 If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.” –Mark 9:42
God does not want us to hamper with his plans for his children. By tempting our fellow Christians, we are distracting them from their walk with the Lord; we are contradicting the Lord, and no one wants to be “that guy.”
So, think of those times when you are really on fire for the Lord. You are reading your bible several times a day, praying constantly, and praising the Lord for all the blessings he has given you. Then you get distracted by something. Maybe you get too busy, or something bad happens and you lose perspective. Don’t you feel terrible?
In this same way, don’t be that distraction for others around you.
You could potentially be leading them away from God.
Instead, remember that it is not only you that you are hurting, but God’s other children.
“28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” -Matthew 5:28

I have dimples. That is all you need to know. Just kidding. I am Jeli. In the past year I have undergone a lot of life-altering events in which my faith has really benefited. I have learned a lot about what I have done wrong and what I should do right. That is why I am here, on TAYA. I want to tell you guys about those things that I did wrong, and to brainstorm ideas with you all on how to do right. So venture with me, think with me, and pray with me. :) Let's do this thing!
