Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Are you more like a wall or a door?
In the Song of Solomon, two types of women are described. One is like a wall; the other like a door. What does that mean?
I think that a wall represents a woman whose life is based on convictions. She doesn’t bend to pressure. When men come along with the wrong kind of advances, she doesn’t give in easily. She has established her life on the truth of God’s Word.
The other kind of woman is like a door that can easily be swayed because her life isn’t built on biblical convictions. She’s vulnerable to temptation. She’s turned aside from integrity and actually becomes a source of temptation herself.
When temptation comes, are you easily moved? Or are you in the process of building your life on God’s Word? Stability comes when we’re seeking Him through His Word.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
