On several occasions I experienced the words of King Salomon about coming close to “the brink of utter ruin” (Prov. 5:14) speaking of sexual temptations.

The celebrated American evangelist, Billy Graham,  was once invited by America´s “first lady”, the wife of president Clinton to her home for a personal talk.  Billy refused as he wouldn´t expose himself to the nearness of a beautiful woman.  (Hillary Clinton was at that time very beautiful).

So a compromise was suggested.  They could meet at a restaurant or the like, surrounded by many watching people.  This was an example for me to follow.

But I hasten to say that there have also been godly women in my life..  A good friend in the U.S. reminded me how godly women were in the lives too of Dwight L. Moody, John Wesley and others.  Indeed, such women have often helped me, especially when I was afflicted and “down”.

The borderline is there, however, and if proper teaching about sext had taken place in Christian churches and circles, a lot of heartbreaking tragedies would have been avoided, don´t you think?

So yes, I “collect” godly women, and so did our Savior.    In His company were also some women who helped out concerning small practical needs (Luke 8:1-3).  Praise God for such women.  They have given me many bright moments!

How´s your life?  Not too bright?  Think of the women in our Savior´s company.  They knew what it was to be in darkness because of their sin, but in Jesus full salvation and forgiveness were found, and from now on they made His company even brighter!  Because of Him only.
