Modesty

9:10:00 PM
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. ~Proverbs 31:22 KJV

Fashion is a big thing today.  Certain styles are "in" right now and the clothing racks at the store are filled with stylish clothing.

The world is all about how you look on the outside. And it's good to look nice on the outside.

But what we wear on the outside reflects what we have on the inside.

So when we're so caught up in the latest trends, but don't bother to check how modest a piece of clothing is, it's reflecting on our heart and where our heart is.

I've heard a lot of talk about being modest for boys. And that's all good and well. We should be aware of the young men around us. But I don't think that's the main reason to be modest.

Being modest ultimately protects us, and shows that we're saving parts of ourselves specifically for our future husbands.

When we choose to dress modestly, we're honoring our future husbands.

Modesty is something you have to be personally convicted about must draw your own line. Some girls may only wear skirts and some may refuse to wear a sleeveless shirt. It all depends on where your convictions lie.

Because modesty is such a controversial topic, it's a good idea to have grace with people. Someone may draw a line that is way less strict than your line, but remember that different people are at different walks in life and have different convictions than you.

Just because someone isn't dressed modestly according to your standards, doesn't mean that she is not a godly person.

But next time you're going out, check your modesty instead of just your style.

  1. Amen, Ashley! Modesty is so important -- especially at the heart, and not just "Girls shouldn't wear ______." But where is our motive? Is it in pleasing God by honoring our future husbands and preserving our own dignity, or is it because someone told us to? Great post; thanks for sharing!
