A lot of girls get purity rings and say that they are 'pure', but aren't actually willing to go through hard times of abstaining from boys in certain ways. For example, some girls get purity rings and say that they are going to stay pure, but go way too far with kissing and touching. I really don;t think this is how God wants us to be. I am (personally) saving my first kiss for my wedding day. I am excited and praying that God will bring me a man that has done the same thing.
To be pure in our heart, minds, and bodies, is hard. I mean, a lot of our music nowadays is about the stuff we want to save for marriage and there are tons of pictures that pop up on your computer screen that completely catch you by surprise. After that happens to you, it is hard to get it to go away. I mean, from personal experience, it really scars your mind.
Here are some verses about purity:
Psalms 119:9: "How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word
2nd Timothy 2:22: "Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.
I have to go!
