Proverbs 11:22 says, “As a ring of gold in a pig’s nose, so is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion.” The truth of this scripture applies to everyone. Your life is as a gold ring, it’s priceless because you’re made in the image of God. It’s meant to be something beautiful, but if you give yourself to sinfulness; if you give your heart to greed, lust, anger, selfishness, sensuality and the like, you’re degrading something meant to be beautiful. A ring given to a pig will end up in the mud. A life given to sin, will also end up in the mud. If you sell yourself cheap, your life will become cheap. You will become what you give yourself to. If you give yourself to something low, you will be lowered. But if you give yourself to something higher, then your life will be lifted up.
So give yourself to what’s pure, true, and holy. Give yourself to Yeshua, Jesus, the Messiah and your life will be lifted up. Then your life will become the treasure it was meant to be and not a ring in a pig’s nose.
