Everyday Blessings: Trophy Vs. Treasure Part 1

Happy Wednesday Everyone! 

I am so thankful for another beautiful day! 

It is finally starting to warm up here in MN- which is a relief because I was beginning to get heavy winter blues, LOL.

Today on Everyday Blessings, I wanted to talk about something that God has been showing me.

Being a woman treasure vs. a trophy

Now, what do I mean? Well many times us women try to adorn ourselves with different clothes, hair and makeup to attract a man. We will exercise and wear the latest swimwear to keep up with trends and make sure that we are still something a guy wants to look at and will love.

Because let's be honest, most of us women want to find LOVE. The sappy rom com type of love that seems the hardest thing to find- but see other women accomplishing it!

Although wanting to be attractive is perfectly normal, many of us miss the biggest key there is- that love doesn't come from how beautiful we are on the outside, but what treasures we hold on the inside. 

Many women mistake being a trophy to a man as being a treasure- & that is just not the case.

Let me explain the differences:

Trophy: A reward for a specific achievement and serves as recognition or evidence of merit. 

Men love to get rewarded for "winning" a challenge. But a trophy gets placed on a shelf to display to anyone who comes by and sees it (not to mention they gather dust). But no matter how big or shiny the trophy is, they will always be replaced by another trophy when a bigger and better one comes along. 

Treasure: Something of great worth or value- also- a person esteemed as rare or precious, a collection of precious things.

A treasure is something a man will search the Earth for. He will spend his whole life finding it if he has to and sacrifice many things to have it. He will go through great lengths to protect his treasure, to take care of his treasure, and to show off his treasure to the world! It is something so valuable to him- nothing could ever replace it. 

"A man values what he works hard for, and he treasures what he values."- Nate Holloway

So, how do we become treasures? I will be going over that next week in Part 2 of Everyday Blessings: Trophy Vs Treasure Part 2! 

But until then, I encourage you to look up scriptures in the bible that explain what a virtuous and God-fearing woman is. 

Here are some helpful study scriptures:
Proverbs 31-10-31
1Peter 3:3-6
Proverbs 31:20
Proverbs 14:1-35
Ephesians 4:29
1 Peter 31:1
Galations 5:22-25
Proverbs 31:26
