She Caught Him
Woman: My friends call guys all the time and asks them out. It doesn’t seem that strange to me. If girls waited for guys to make the first move, we’d never get together.
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Girls and women today have been encouraged to be the aggressors in relationships with men. So many have never been taught the beauty of God’s created order, where men are primarily responsible to initiate and women are to respond.
Proverbs 7 gives us a picture of a foolish woman who entraps a young man. It says, “She caught him and kissed him.” It says that she had an impudent face as she talked with him. Another word for impudent is shameless or brazen. This woman throws herself on this man, physically and verbally.
I think a lot of women are doing the same thing today. They may not have immoral intent like this foolish woman, but they are showing a lack of discretion. As women, let’s ask God to show us the beauty and peace that comes from being a responder.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
