After spending some hours talking with my young men about what to look for in a young woman, I decided to do a little research. I’ve been thinking about this subject, and of course keeping my eyes open. Here is one undesirable trait in a young woman: mocking.

I’ll share with you a bit of the results of the study, and as I come up with more, I’ll post more.

Mocking: ridicule, tease, make fun of, laugh at, scorn, scoff at, deride; mimic, imitate

Ge 21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.

2Ki 2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

2Ch 36:16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

Pr 14:9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.

Mt 27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him

From just a little look at the Word of God, you can see that mocking is something a person does to someone else, and it’s not good. Any young lady, or perhaps she’s just a female, who spends some time mocking others is not a good candidate for my sons.
