A Virtuous Woman is to be Prized
Today I read Lamentations 2 where Jeremiah laments the loss of the daughters of Zion. It is a shame that in days past we prized women for their virtue and for their goodness. It is a real shame that we do not look for such qualities in women anymore. Now we just look for physical beauty and for other qualities that should not be prized at all. It is a real shame that as a society we have done such a great job of degrading women that women have abandoned their virtue for debasement more worldly pursuits. It would seem that Latter-day Saint women and a few other notable exceptions, are the only ones that prize virtue in women and appreciate the sanctity of virtue. We must set the example and show the world that virtue is still the quality we should find in women. If we don't, who will? Until tomorrow.
