As ladies, we are likely to swoon over romantic phrases. We go all to items after we hear them spoken in motion pictures and songs, and we dream of the day we would be the fortunate recipient of a person’s spoken adoration. And whereas that is all nice and dandy, we have to examine our Bibles for the primary time a girl is ever spoken to as a result of there we are going to discover a slight drawback. I’m, after all, referring to when the Serpent first spoke to Eve, and what we uncover is that Eve was simply deceived by phrases.

So whereas it is good to be observed, we nonetheless have to train good judgement. It is also necessary to remember that as ladies, we might be extra susceptible to flattery if our dads haven’t first assured us, in their very own phrases, that we’re stunning.
