I was looking at a situation that is said to be a match made in heaven to the people living it, but I wasn’t so sure. When I asked God about it, He told me that the situation was not in HIS divine order. You see it was never God’s will for a woman to woo a man, even if it seems that she has been successful. Oh, I watched situations like this play out. And I don’t believe for one minute it’s God’s way.
I’m reminded of one of my favorite movies, which his called Sense and Sensibility. The store is about 3 sisters and a mother after the death of the father. One sister, wanted a passionate romance and she got what she wanted. She gave herself with abandon to this man, without a commitment (which was unheard of during those times). There was an older man who loved her waiting in the wings, but she didn’t want him. Well the younger sister ends up getting her heart broken in the process. Not smart to abandon yourself to a man who is uncommitted.
Then the older sister (who I identify with) was very cautious with her heart and actions and it appears she is about to lose the man she has grown fond of. He had made a sort of commitment, but because he is a man of his word, he almost goes through with his commitment until his intended falls for his brother. Well long story short, the older sister get’s her man by being conservative with her feelings (she uses wisdom). And the younger woman learns to appreciate and love the older man after her heart is broken.
The younger sister realizes that she should have been more like her older sister. So what is the moral of the story?? NEVER WOO A MAN. It may work for a while, but ultimately it won’t work because it’s out of God’s order!
If you get a chance, rent Sense and Sensibility. I think it’s a great movie!
