accordance with such scriptural dictates, many teens have made promises
to themselves, God and their parents, that they will refrain from sex
until marriage. Purity rings are ways that a few students remind
themselves of the promise
they have made.
"I wear my ring because I made a promise to God to stay a virgin until I am married," says one high school junior. She first started wearing hers after she attended a Christian summer camp, and she and a friend decided that if asked, they would wear promise rings.
This young lady believes that through this ring her relationship with God has become stronger, and she will always be reminded of her morals.
"From a religious standpoint, my choice to wear my ring strengthens my relationship with God. I feel that as teenagers, especially girls, we find ourselves in situations where we are extremely vulnerable and don’t always make the right decisions. My ring helps remind me not just about my promise to God, but about what kind of person people will think of me, if I do something I know is not right for me," she says.
The enclosed interpretation is included with each Purity Ring;
The ring’s a special symbol of the promise that I’ve made,
With your help, O Lord, I know its glow will never fade.
With your help, O Lord, I’ll stand firm, though some may criticize
For whose opinion matters, if I look good in Your eyes?
Who can give me anything to take the place of You?
Who on earth can justify a love that isn’t true?
So, I make my statement, on my hand and in my heart.
I know, one day, I’ll hear You say I chose the better part.
The world calls this “old fashioned”; still, I’ll wait – it’s just a while.
For Honor, Truth, and Faithfulness are never out of style.
Teach your son or daughter how they can show affection and caring without having sex. Let your pre-teen or teen know you want them to make good choices because you want them to reach their goals and have a great future.
Each ring is shipped in a velvet pouch with card and gift box.
