I'm going to back track from the beginning here & tell you - I have ALWAYS loved nose piercings! Weird? I don't know why - but I just think they are cute. Now, I'm NOT talking about the kind that have chains from your nose that drape to your ear or anything like a bull ring shooting through your nose - just a cute little diamond stud - I think its cute. I had a friend in high school that had one & it looked adorable - & even now, Amber has one that just looks so cute - just that cute little stud. I had that conversation with some friends just the other day that I would love to still get one - don't know how cute it would be anymore with a woman in her 30's - but I can still dream that I'm young.
Getting to the Biblical part....this week, my study is on Rebekah (love the name!) & I'm reading where the servant has found her to be the answer to the prayers he had given to find a wife for Isaac. To make a long story short - she's the one & what does he say to her in Genesis 24:47....none other than, "Then I put a ring in her nose & a bracelet on her arms..." - WHAT? They wore rings in their noses! Nose piercings even then!! I got looks talking to my friends about wanting a nose piercing! Now, I can tell them its Biblical! Where's the closest piercing palor? (Is that what they're even called? - I'm old!) And by the way, a nose piercing is again mentioned in Ezekial 16:12!
The study was pretty neat though because it talked about how men wore earrings & had long hair & of course I thought of my husband & thought he's on track with the men of the ole' Bible himself! I should join right along & get that piercing!
The study was much more than that though - it talked about how the importants of Jewels in God's eyes are & also how we enjoy the beauty of wearing such things - but its got to be more about the beauty on the inside, not the outside. When you clasp that necklace around your neck, you should also clasp a sweet spirit onto your attitiude. The jewels you wear wont truly make a difference in your attitude - the beauty in your spirit will.
