I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. ~ 1 Timothy 2:9-10
What do you like to wear? If you’re like most girls, you probably like to dress with today’s latest styles. But anymore, today’s styles are ever so changing. Clothes are tighter, shorter and lower cut. Dressing sexy is IN and people notice. Girls, the guys notice, and that’s not always a good thing.
Just for the record felllas…nobody wants to see your nasty boxers hanging out of your jeans either.
I can hear girls saying right now, “yeah, but I have a great body and I want to show it off”. There’s nothing wrong with having a great body. There’s nothing wrong with working out and trying to improve your health and body. You read the Bible to become stronger in the Word, right? Well, working out does that same thing for your body.
However, there is a issue when it comes to dressing cheap or trying to show it all off. First, it’s not honoring God, and second, you can cause your brothers in Christ to stumble. And since we guys are extremely weak in the area of “visual stimulation” that can cause us to lust, which means you’re causing us to sin. Those tight clothes you ladies wear sometimes can be stumbling blocks to guys.
Modesty means to be humble. By dressing modestly, you might get passed over by that one guy, but wouldn’t you rather a guy like you for WHO you are, not WHAT you are? I’m not saying you have to dress like a grandma, but just make wise choices when it comes to your “style”.
Remember…modest is hottest.
