SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 21, 2022 (MARKETING CARNALITY INSTEAD OF SPIRITUALITY)
TOPIC: MARKETING CARNALITY INSTEAD OF SPIRITUALITY
SCRIPTURE: And, behold, there met him, a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. Proverbs 7:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: We live in a generation that market the flesh and advertise carnality instead of spirituality.
Most people today dress to expose their bodies. Seductive and suggestive dressings have become the popular styles of dressing in our generation. We live in a generation that market the flesh and advertise carnality instead of spirituality.
Each time a person dresses in a seductive manner, the person only succeeds in advertising the body parts with unspoken statements like, “Everybody look at me, look at how big my hips are, just take a look at how seductive I am.”
When someone looks at a seductively dressed person, the first thing that comes to their mind is immorality. When you expose your body, you are directing people to eternal damnation; yet, you claim to be a child of God.
Where is the place of decency, decorum and dignity in our world today, especially among Christians? One of the worst things that can happen to a Christian is to become a tool in the hands of satan the devil unknowingly.
The devil gets his sons and daughters possessed with demonic spirits that make them to carry out his assignments, thereby leading many to hell. The tragedy is that many children of God have unconsciously joined the children of the devil to fulfil satan’s vision of leading people to hell by the way they dress.
When you look at men who are decently dressed, you will not see anyone with his chest exposed. Even if he is not putting on a tie, his shirt is properly buttoned up. But for the women, the opposite is the case. The cleavage of the chest must be left bare; the parts of the body that used to be hidden in those days are now being unashamedly exposed to their own damnation and the damnation of the world. The tragedy is that those seductive clothes are being worn by many to church. It ought not to be so.
Beloved, be determined to refuse worldly, seductive ways of dressing.
Remember this: We live in a generation that market the flesh and advertise carnality instead of spirituality.
