Words of Wisdom for Daughters Becoming Christian Women in Today’s World

My parents have 4 daughter and one son, I’m the youngest of my parent’s daughters, and they have done an AMAZING job in raising us. When I become a mother one day I want to share these words of wisdom below that will help my daughter, or daughters become AMAZING Christians in today’s world.

Identify Yourself in Christ First and Foremost

During a quick scroll through social media, it’s hard to miss the standard message – “You be You!” On the surface, this phrase may seem as though it promotes gratitude for how God uniquely made us. However, the message really encourages one to look inward instead of upward for our identity, defining us by what we do instead of who we are in Christ.

When we accept Christ as the one who died and rose again to take away our sins, we become new creations in Christ, co-heirs with the Son of God (Romans 8:17). That said, it is all important to resist the temptation to define yourself by the world’s descriptors when you are a daughter of the King of King and Lord of Lords!

Ask God to Give You Spiritual Discernment and Wisdom for Each Day

Wisdom and knowledge are used interchangeably, but they have two different meanings. Knowledge is the acquisition of facts or information; wisdom is the proper application of knowledge; discernment is the ability to know when and how to apply wisdom. Discernment helps us recognize our enemy, even when cleverly disguised. There is a plethora of information available at the touch of a button; we must know how to use the lens of Scripture to filter and sift content we allow to influence our attitudes and actions.

Embrace Your Unique Role as a Woman

God created men and women equally, yet differently, which is not a bad thing. Society shuns biblical womanhood and distorts the woman’s role in marriage and in the family, insisting that it is oppressive and outdated. Not to imply that God has called every woman to the roles of wife, mother and homemaker; we must remember, however, that God did create Eve for Adam, to be Adam’s helpmate.

Measure Your Beauty by God’s Standards

Our gracious Heavenly Father bestowed upon his creations physical beauty, but because of the fallen nature of our world, the definition of true beauty has become corrupt and defiled, often defined exclusively in sensual and sexual terms. While we focus on outward appearances, the Lord defines real beauty by purity within, by our heart’s desire for holiness. In the long run, inner beauty supersedes physical beauty, which is fleeting and fades away, for only inner beauty transcends both time and place.

“Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God” (1 Peter 3:3-4).

Pursue Friendships with Other Christian Believers

Having a variety of friends from different backgrounds, different religious or political views is good as long as we do not “yoke” ourselves by joining them in sin. However, the majority of a believer’s closest relationships should be with fellow Christians.

It has never been popular to be a Christian, especially one who lives according to his or her God-given convictions. But today, and arguably in the foreseeable future, professing Christians, even in America, will face discrimination and persecution. We need friends who hold us accountable to God’s Word, who guide us back to Him when we stray and encourage us to pursue holiness in a wicked and perverse world.

God created us for fellowship with Him and with sisters and brothers in Christ. We were not meant to practice our faith in isolation, so seek out the family of God and cling to these relationships for growth, comfort, and strength.

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity” (Colossians 3:12-13).

Prioritize Personal Bible Study

Don’t neglect reading your Bible by outsourcing your Bible study to pastors, podcasts, and social media. These are all excellent avenues to develop and strengthen our faith, but they are no substitute for personal Bible study. It’s easy to know a lot about the Bible without actually knowing the Bible. Don’t be satisfied with surface-level faith, which is easily shaken and quickly picked apart by a hostile and godless world. Build your hope and assurance on the solid foundation of truth, one built through time and commitment to reading and hiding God’s Word in our hearts.

“How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word” (Psalm 119:9).

Live with an Eternal Perspective

Living with an eternal perspective shapes how we live our lives. It guides us in our decision-making, helps us focus on the truly important, and provides comfort and peace in a chaotic world. Remember that this world is not our home but a temporary timeshare on our way to our eternal destination, for “our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20). When the demands of today wear you down, remember that it will pass. You are not living your best life now – your best life is yet to come, and it will last forever.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

  1. CTN, good post. Women should never be ashamed of being devout. It is not uncommon for the mother to be the religious caretaker of the family. And, women played a key role in keeping Christianity alive after the Romans stepped up their persecution after Jesus was crucified.

    However, women need to be mindful that too many religious texts can be taken out of context to make women too subservient to men. This was a premise of one former president’s Jimmy Carter’s books “A Call to Action” a sequel to a very tough read on how women are globally maltreated called “Half the Sky” by Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn. Too many women are abused by domestic violence, sex trafficking, genital mutilation, being sold into marriage at too young an age, and sexually assaulted.

    On the first trauma, I volunteered to help homeless working families and about 1/3 of our families were victims of domestic violence. No husband should feel liberty to physically and emotionally abuse his wife. Full stop. Yet, strange as this may sound, a friend who was beaten told me her minister said if she was a better wife, her husband would not beat her. She left that church and that husband.

    I hope you do not mind me adding this comment. If you do not care for it, please feel free to delete it. Keith

  2. “Don’t neglect reading your Bible…”

    May I suggest that when in doubt just read and meditate on whichever Proverbs matches that particular day of the month? For example, today I should read Proverbs 23 and see what it has to tell me this time.
