Now that summer is in full force, I am bombarded with clothes so tight and so small that they barely would cover my thigh. There are times that I want to cover my eyes and take my family to the mountains to live by ourselves. I get it, it's not fashionable to wear a potato sack but when did it become acceptable and appropriate to wear shorts that are cut so short that the pockets hang down longer than the hem line? And do really need to see your cleavage?
I'm not perfect. I had my fair share of bikinis and tank tops as a teenager. Now that I am married and a mom (of boys at that), I see what happens when women flaunt "their goods." Would we feel right standing before God in that too-tight dress? Might we blush knowing that our shorts were causing a friend's father to look at us a little to much?
My SIL posted this article and what Chelsea from More Like Momma says is beautifully written:
I saw a girl over my lunch break the other day that was wearing a teeny-tiny little dress. It was a strapless dress that she kept tugging to stay up, and it barely covered her bottom when she sat down. With summer upon us, I think it is an excellent time to talk about modesty. Last summer I was at a baseball game on the 4 of July in Kansas City and it was HOT. It was so hot and humid and miserable that I wanted to strip down to my underwear and run through a sprinkler. But I do know even though it is difficult and takes effort, it is possible to dress modestly even on the hottest days.
If you consistently fail to present yourself in a way befitting a lady who professes to worship God (1 Timothy 2:9-10) how can I trust your advice on matters of the heart?
"Modesty isn't about covering up our bodies because they're bad; modesty isn't about hiding ourselves, it's about revealing our dignity." ~ Jessica Rey
We can be Godly women who are modest and still stylish!
We are made beautiful in His image.
