Talitha Cumi Part 3...Stop the Foolish

Malachi 3 vs 15:From now on we will call the arrogant blessed. For those who do evil get rich, and those who dare God to punish them suffer no harm.

It's everywhere you look..

Channel 1: Foolish drunk girl turned overnight superstar for drinking herself into a stupor and throwing up on herself
Channel 2: Foolish girl on TV for the 4th time bringing the 4th possible "baby daddy" to be tested for paternity
Channel 3: 30 Foolish Young girls all looking for "love" on TV and are willing to fight each other for a single guy's attention; even though he is sleeping with all 30 of them.
Channel 4: Group of girls live in a housewhere all they do is fight, get drunk, cry, have casual sex, cry some more, fall asleep and wake up to begin all over again.
Channel 5: Singer romping around barely dressed; all in the name of " showing the strength of womanhood" (PLEASE!!!)


Why are these people "Stars"?

To think with with all the advancement and improvement women have made, how far we have fought to elevate ourselves in a once male dominated world; it's all come to this... we are on TV, yes, but we are either naked, drunk, selling our beauty or degrading our bodies. All for those precious 15 mins of fame.

And what do we do? We raise these "stars" up on a pedestal and fantasize on how lucky they are to be famous. For a chance to see them we scurry through streets hoping not to miss this week's expressions of foolishness. We write about them, listen to them, talk about them, read about them, buy their products, try to dress like them, secretly envy them; all for a chance to be a part of their "life".

15 min of fame

Ladies, it is time to Talitha Cumi and stop the foolish. We have sooo much more to give in this world than our bodies. When we forget this, we allow the world to use our essence in a way that degrades us; we allow our sexuality to be used from selling everything from a can of beer to a pair of shoes. We are strong, the only creation to have risen from flesh and bones; not dust like everything else. We are life bearers and are created in the image of perfection. Once you know your worth; No one will ever be able to take it away from you.

Womanhood I

Talitha Cumi!!!!

Malachi 3 vs 16: "...and the LORD listened to what they said... In his presence, a scroll of remembrance was written to record the names of those who feared him and always thought about the honor of his name. {He says} On the day when I act in judgment, you will again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not."
