The Girl Clad in Underwear Who Sent Me a Friend Request
Like plenty of other guys who are active on social media, I get my fair share of spam material, among which are bogus friend requests from women (girls?) in which their profile pics look like a shot from a soft porn film. I got another one of those the other day. If I could speak to the young lady in that picture, I would tell her something along these lines:
There is no disputing the fact that you are beautiful. There’s also no disputing the fact that you know the power of your own body, that you can easily make men lust, lure them to click ‘accept’ on that friend request. We’re pushovers for that kind of thing, after all.
What you may not be aware of, however, is what a waste you are making of your beauty. You are so much more than a pair of breasts and a vagina. What you’re doing is more or less visual prostitution, trading the riches of virtue for the poverty of smut.
You’ll find one day–at least I pray you do–that you reach the pinnacle of beauty not when hordes of men gawk at you, but when you’re alone with the man to whom you have pledged absolute fidelity, when your beautiful body is joined to his in the constitutive act of marriage.
That union will not be a waste, but a wealth of joy and contentment. So save your images for him, for you bear the image of God, the Father of Christ, who loves you as you are now, and wills that you be his in righteousness and purity forever.
