(Pro 11:22 KJV) As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
I have to love this.
I wonder what this would say if it were written by a woman.
The desired quality is not outward appearance but “discretion” (2940). I think we can assume that this is a concept that cuts across sexual lines. Outward adornment is not to be our focus. I don’t know if you ever shop in big malls, but I do it once in awhile to remind myself of why I don’t. I can do a very large mall in about 20 minutes. One thing I notice is that most of the stores are focused on snout decorations. I may be shoes and it may be health food but it is all designed to decorate the pig in us. God wants us to exercise inner beauty in things such as discretion.
