Modesty is Important
Is N*dity In Classic Art Okay (And Link Up)
Should Christians Wear Bathing Suits at All?
Immodest Women are Mean
Dressing Modestly Is....... (If you only read one post read this one)
"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;"
1 Timothy 2:8-10
I led a Bible study one time when I was in college about modesty that caused an uproar from the girls on campus. Girls who weren't at the Bible study were so upset at how judgmental we were being. Had they attended the Bible study they would have realized the spirit in which this issue was addressed, but the grape vine is so much more interesting when details are left out.
Many of the girls seemed to take the stance that it was no ones right to tell them how to dress. And yet scriptures are anything but silent on the issue of modesty.
Since the weather is getting warmer, and clothes are getting smaller, I'm going to take a few days and look at the issue of modesty and standards. We'll examine n*dity, bathing suits, and every day clothing.
If our modesty wasn't important it wouldn't be in the Bible.
This series will not be about pants vs skirts. It will not be about bikinis and traditional swimsuits, it will not be a list of what I think you should wear.
What this series will be about is our hearts, yielding to what God says and not the standards of men. Modesty isn't just about what we wear.
This week we'll be looking at some different aspects of modesty. We'll look at pants vs skirts, swimsuits, dance classes for little girls, and a handful of other things that might be a touch controversial. But it really isn't my place to tell you what's modest and what isn't, but more on that thought later : )
So, before we begin: What are your thoughts on modesty? Have you ever been in a situation where it's needed to addresses? Where it's become a controversy? Are you trying to teach modesty to your daughters?
I've disabled commenting on these posts.....sigh some people, I've cried too much yesterday and today from personal attacks on my marriage and appearance. I'm not playing the game any more. It truly breaks my heart. If this post has been a blessing to you since you can't comment would you mind sharing it via one of the buttons below?
