What Is Modesty?
This is such a wonderful video. I wanted to share it with you. I will say however, I don't care for the music at the very beginning and ending of the video, but thought it was such a good link, I decided to share it anyway. We need to think as women how we are dressing. We need to think as mothers how we are training our daughters to dress and to know that modesty is not just about what you put on, but ultimately what is in your heart. We need to love Christ and our fellow brothers enough not to cause them to stumble because of how we dress and act in their presence. I heard Paul Washer say one time that modesty can be described as something like this: If what you wear draws attention to your face and thereby is a way to point others to Christ through your spirit, then you are modest. If, however, how you dress draws attention to your body and away from you face, then that is not modesty. I hope to write more about this later as I continue with my Training Children in Godliness series. Pray about your dress...your daughter's dress. Let your husbands critic your daughter's attire. Most godly fathers know what men struggle with and will not allow their daughters to be such a temptation. Let's be shining examples Christ for the world inwardly and outwardly. God bless you!
