Proverbs 11 – Lipstick On A Pig…Still A Pig

A harsh reality revealed to us in our Proverbs on external beauty 

Pro 11:22  Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion.

This proverb has been modified over the years to say when you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig, but the wisdom remains – the pig is a the nastiest of animals, they root, eat and sleep in their own feces.  

Hard to get lower on the food chain that a pig, and that truism should not be lost on us as it relates to a beautiful woman who has no direction (or sleeps around).  

God hates adultery; and today’s Word likens women who go from bed to bed as like that of a pig with an gold…gold or no gold, it’s still a pig, and sleeping around it is piggish behavior.   While this Proverb focuses on women without discretion, men are not exempt either.  

The commandment of not committing adultery is not exclusive to just women, but applies to men too.
