Dumb Blondes and Dumb Lawyers
Growing up blonde had some advantages and disadvantages. One disadvantage is suffering through one dumb blonde joke after another. Then after I became an attorney, I endured one silly lawyer joke after another. My daughter, Megan, loved to tease me with the double whammy--dumb blonde/dumb lawyer jokes.
I wonder just how many women are treated like they are dumb blondes, regardless of their hair color. Or just as bad, I wonder how many women hold this view of themselves. Sadly many girls grow up thinking that their looks are more important than their minds.
But guess what I discovered?
Women (and men) are created in the image of God!
And my God is smart. In fact, Jesus is the smartest man who ever lived. (Yes I ripped off this idea from the brilliant Dallas Willard.) So let's not fool ourselves, ladies, into thinking our minds don't matter. We were created to be smart.
Jesus said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind." Luke 10:27
How can you love God with your mind if your mind is full of junk? Go feed your mind with "good food." Put away the mommy porn, romantic fantasies, and gossip magazines. Try some manna. Learn some deeper stuff, especially about God, the One who created you because He loves you and has a plan for your life.
