The Poisonous Woman
When you think of something that is poisonous it typically involves a substance that could possibly kill anything that is living. Anthrax, venom or chemicals may be what come to mind when you think about something poisonous. Poison is usually hidden within something that one might find pleasant. It could even be disguised as something sweet. The point of hiding its true identity is to trick the intended target into thinking what they are about to ingest is something that they think they desire. It may look good on the outside but inside, the contents can be lethal. These same traits can also describe the poisonous woman.
Sweet on the outside yet deadly on the inside.
Now I understand that this post may not sit well with some and I understand why. The fact of the matter is that women must do better at respecting the sanctity of marriage. Before you say it, men need to as well but that is a discussion for a later date. Right now the focus is on the poisonous woman lack of respect for other women. Really, it all boils down to not having any respect for yourself.
Women are powerful and have the ability to bring forth life and to destroy it. However when did it become so easy for a woman to disrespect another woman by getting involved with her husband? Or when did it become acceptable to cheat on your own husband? To the poisonous woman, this is not a big deal. She may actually even think that she has done nothing wrong. I mean, He was the one who said he was unhappy. You were just stepping in the be what he said his wife couldn’t be.
After all, you can always trust an unfaithful husband right?
The poisonous woman disguises herself to be what she is told is needed. Her poison is camouflaged to look like something better than what the husband has at home in his wife. Without even realizing it, she degrades herself to lies and manipulation. She masks her insecurity in what she thinks she’s providing that he said he wasn’t getting at home. There is no care for the lives she has ruined or the pain she help to cause because in her mind, she won. Or did she?
The Bible says is Job 4:8
Those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.
So at the end of the day what you’ve really won are the seeds you sowed. If you’re being honest with yourself, you wouldn’t want karma finding its way to your door. It goes back to the golden rule:
If there were ever any misunderstanding, please know that God would never give you someone else’s husband. With that same sentiment, God would never tell you to get involved with another man while you yourself are married. That would make Him a liar and He is not a man that He would lie. He ordained marriage between one man and one woman. Not once did God include a side chick as a part of the covenant.
Ladies you’re better than that.
Think of yourself more highly than having the ability to woo a broken man away from his family. Also, don’t degrade yourself to the point where you leave your family to pursue a broken man. God did not create you to be a mistress or an adulterer. He loves you and He created you as His masterpiece, one that is beautifully and wonderfully made. Don’t settle for a man who obviously doesn’t love himself. You have the power to walk away from his advances. Allow God to fill the empty spaces in your heart and respect yourself enough not fall into desperation.
It’s not too late to end it and walk away. As a matter of fact God is waiting for you to do so. Just as Jesus forgave the woman who was caught in adultery, He also will forgive you. Now “go and sin no more”.
In Relentless Pursuit,
“For the lips of an immoral woman are as sweet as honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil. But in the end she is as bitter as poison, as dangerous as a double-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. For she cares nothing about the path to life. She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t realize it.” – Proverbs 5:3-6 NLT
