I love what one of my commentaries says about Rebekah in Genesis 24 where it tells the story of Abraham's servant going to get a wife for Isaac. I wish every teenage girl knew this:
Rebekah is an example of what every young woman ought to be. She was chaste. She had a servant spirit. She was chaste (Gen 24:16). She had a servant spirit (Gen 24:18–19). She was hospitable (Gen 24:25). She was modest (Gen 24:65). Rebekah was everything that modern teenage girls are so often encouraged not to be. Instead of locking herself in her room, she was out collecting water for her family. Instead of being glued to her cellphone, she was on the lookout for strangers who needed a drink. Instead of showing off her undergarments (or lack thereof!), Rebekah “took her veil and covered herself” as she prepared to meet her fiancé. And (wonder of wonders!) Isaac was attracted to her! Need we say more? Rebekah is a picture-perfect example for young ladies! Opening up Genesis..
And that last bit is very true. Men have always been more attracted to what they can't see, then what they can see. (boys too!). The more you show, the less there is for the guy to imagine, and the less interest he will have in you - other than to use you and brag about it to others. No girl should want to be used. Instead, wait to be truly loved. Boys and men will use girls that will show it all, and are willing to have sex, but those aren't the girls they want to take home to their parents as a marriage partner. Instead they want someone they can respect.
Daniel: Thank you, Kelly!
