Which Culture Do you follow, woman of God?

Author requests article critique
To Women, the culture of the world tries to dictate, “You need to be aggressive and confrontational to make your own way, and you must strive to maintain equal rights with men. Be skinny or obese, one is “beautiful” the other makes a rebel statement. Wear the latest designer clothes and have your hair in the latest style to be accepted and approved of. Be the perfect “Stepford” wife, raise perfect children that also model a culture of performance. Have a career and be the best at what you do, to be sure you are seen to, “have it all together” and are” keeping up with the Jones’s”.
To Women, the culture of the kingdom encourages you to trust in the Lord, for He makes a way for you. (Proverbs 3:5-6) Submit to one another in love (1 Pet 5:5) for you are a child of God, unique with you own divine purpose, incomparable to men or anyone else. (Ps 139:14) Your looks and grooming flow from and reflect the spiritual you within –radiating with the Spirit of God. (Col 1:27, Gal 5:22) Your weight and grooming are sourced from discipline and modesty, not outward societal pressure upon you. Our Father is Royalty and not a “cheapskate”, He desires to see His children healthy and well groomed.
Holy Spirit is creative as He is part of our Father who created the universe, so He supports and encourages us to also be creative in every area of our lives including fashion styling and grooming, as long as we acknowledge that He is our source not the world! (2 Pet 1:4) He just loves it when His daughters enjoy their femininity by wearing skirts and dresses from time to time!
“And do not adorn yourselves with outward adornments such as the plaiting of your hair or the wearing of ornaments of gold or costly apparel; But adorn yourselves by the spiritual man within you, with meek pride which is incorruptible and an ornament which is rich in the sight of God. For so also in the past did the holy women who trusted in God adorn their lives and were submissive to their own husbands, even as Sarah was submissive to Abraham and called him my lord; her daughters you are by reason of good works and so long as you are not confused by any kind of false value.” 1 Peter 3:3-6 Lamsa (Aramaic)
Father, Thank-you for sending Jesus to die for us to be restored to union with your Spirit, help us to rule our lives from your Spirit as daughters of Sarah, and not take after the culture of this world. Amen.
