They say people with pure intentions never win in this era. In this time when cheating is a norm, flirting becomes a hobby, lying becomes too hip, boundaries are not necessary, chastity isn't the priority, and modesty and chivalry seem for royals.
Perhaps, they are right because it's hard to pursue nobility at this age. But if you still believe in pure intentions, beloved you're doing great! If you're doing this not to be liked or to impress, you're doing great!
Pursue it because it is the right thing to do, and it's okay not to fit in and to dare differently. And soon you'll understand you made the right decision. You will reap what you sow. For every cause, there is an effect.
Stand your ground.
Hold on firmly to your values and beliefs. Character is the most underrated elegance at this time. Perhaps because no one is talking about it. You might think everyone values faces, curves, and muscles more than souls but your pure intentions set you apart from others. Your kindness, authenticity, perseverance, and faith make you more attractive.
And if you also meet people with pure intentions, keep them because they are hard to find.
Keep in mind, if you keep yourself pure you will be a special utensil for honorable use. You will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.
If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil God can use for his purpose. Your life will be clean, and you'll be ready for the Master to use for every good work.2 Timothy 2:21
