Every time a sex scandal appears in the media someone desires to speak on the subject of gold digger syndrome. The constant complaints of female feminist about equal pay and the fact that rich men, who are clearly unattractive, with extremely attractive women may make you wonder why? Is this a real problem or is it Hollywood theatrics?
The fact cannot be denied that woman nine times out of ten will lower their standards for a man with power and wealth versus males doing the same. How many men are beating down the rich doors of Whoopi Goldberg. Sorry, Whoopi. I realize the paradigm is changing, for the first time woman in America are vastly more employed and are graduating college at record numbers compared to males.
However, the gold digger syndrome has not gone away and the idea that women are power seekers is obvious. Is this a problem? Yes! For the Christian woman her mandate according to the word is to “be saved through childbearing–if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety” (1 Timothy 2:15). Of course, this idea is unpopular to the ungodly woman, but a woman filled with the Holy Ghost can only say Amen.
A woman’s kryptonite is power. Turn the pages of Chapter three in Genesis and it becomes clear Satan tempted the woman with the idea to have more power. “You shall be as gods (Gen 3:5).” I can imagine her mind twirling about thinking about the first things she would do with the newfound power. Of course, in the beginning I used the term gold digger, but it equates to power. Hence, money being the answer to all things found in Ecclesiastes 10:19.
What is a woman to do? Look well into the ways of her household and not eat the bread of idleness. When you look at the story of Joseph that I used for man’s kryptonite, you will notice that Potiphar’s wife was idle. How else would she have time to watch Joseph? When a Christian woman is preoccupied with her family and their well being, it protects her from her own thirst for power. God blesses the woman who takes care of her family, including the husband, just in case you forgot he is part of the family.
I could go on concerning the professions women choose to exploit their bodies with (strippers, nude models, sex tapes, premarital sex) instead of choosing to be chaste. Many of these women are lured into this, because of their lust for power and money. Of course, sex trafficking is real and drugs are closely related to these, but most of the time the door or promise used is money and power. Protect yourself woman of God by your preoccupation with your family and abstinence from idleness. Satan should not have had Eve’s ear that way. She should have been preoccupied with her husband and they should have been having lots of sex, under God’s command, to be fruitful and multiply.
