Modesty - There's more to it!!

>> Friday, June 29, 2012

Modesty seems to be the subject of many posts and conversations lately.  I've always dressed modest as an adult. (excuse my teenage years!  lol)  I do not wear skirts ONLY.  I do wear them most of the time though.  However I dress, I do it modestly as I feel I should for my husband, example to my children, and most importantly for my sweet Lord!!

But wait.... there's more.

We need to study our hearts.  Do our hearts show the same modesty as our clothes do?  Do we make sure we spend time with the Lord by the Bible and by prayer?  Do we pray for others or just ourselves and our own families?  Do we reach out to help others in need?  Do we share the Lord with others?  Do we lead a life that is as pure (hopefully MORE PURE) as how we dress.  Do we live a lifestyle of Jesus?  Do we put others before ourselves?  Do we strive hard to take care of our husbands and show him respect?  Do we take care of our children and raise them for Christ?  Do we seek to set an example for all the people we come in contact with?  Do you wear a smile on your face and brighten your countenance?  That smile might be the only good thing about someone's day that is having a bad day or is lonely, etc...  Are you living out loud a life for our Lord?

Yes, we do need to dress modestly, but we also need to be in prayer and the Bible to keep growing AND putting into action the things we are learning in the Bible to gain wisdom.

May you be blessed by our precious Lord today!!!

Yes, these all go hand-in hand. It is all about loving the Lord and loving our neighbor as ourselves.
