Recently there's been a pm going from pm to pm on Facebook.  It reads...

Some fun is going on.... just write the color of your bra in your status. Just the color, nothing else. And send this on to ONLY girls no men .... It will be neat to see if this will spread the wings of cancer awareness. It will be fun to see how long it takes before the men will wonder why all the girls have a color in their status... Haha!

I joined in the fun, but as usual, somehow it ended up not being that much fun, when the criticism started.

  • On the issue of modesty:
First of all, the pm was only suppose to be sent to women.  If a man made a comment, how about ignoring it or just saying something like LOL?  For example I put pink, and a friend commented "pepto bismal"  I just commented , "ROFLOL"  there was no need to explain. 

Second of all, if men are obsessed with a woman's bra color...he's been lusting after her for more than that.
Besides if the church would be teaching this verse, bra color might not be such an issue.

2 Corinthians 10:5 (King James Version)

5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

  • On the issuse of making people aware:
I think the stir is making people more aware of Breast Cancer.  We know GOD is the HEALER and the CURE, but it's important people are aware.  Not every christian is at the level of understanding or have the faith level for healing yet.  We also need to be aware, so we know how to pray and pray specifically.

GOD can heal that too, but in the meantime, what about all the women searching for a cure. Maybe they don't know the LORD...or maybe they do, but don't understanding healing.  Regardless, there still needs to be an awareness.  No, we don't understand the scars, but we are trying to raise awareness to help, not to hurt.

It's time to let it go and move on...

Blessings until next time!
