You may be wondering why I have included Potiphar’s wife in this list of exemplary women of the Bible. It was evident that her character was deceitful and conniving.
She lusted after Joseph, the handsome young man who worked for her husband and tried to seduce him.
Potiphar’s wife is an example of ladies who used their bodies and tongue to attract and seduced weak men. A prostitute can reduce a man to a crust of bread which means she will reduce him to poverty. It is important that men practiced self-control and strengthen themselves in the word of God and walk in the light of Jesus Christ.
Women do have a responsibility to keep themselves circumspect. Loving and respecting yourself are keys to obtaining the respect of men in return.
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. (Ephesians 5:15-16)
