Is Modesty Your Policy?

Modesty Header

Modesty is the opposite of what is blasted all over our mainstream culture. Just a day or so ago on my Facebook Newsfeed I read a question asking others how they felt about the dress policies in school (I 100% agreed with my FB friend that immodesty can affect students within their learning environment). Modesty & immodesty are all around us. We’ve all heard that saying, “What’s on the inside is what matters”…well… I wanted to do a *happy dance* when I read what Courtney at Women Living Well had to say on this issue in a recent blog post.
modesty quote
 
How we present ourselves to others gives an impression. Not necessarily being fashionable, stylish, or trendy…but modest. I’ve heard some people say “I don’t care what people think about me.” Wake up people! How people perceive you is a part of your witness. Before you can bring others to know the Lord…they have to trust and respect you in order to believe in what you are sharing.
 
Search your soul. Look at yourself in the mirror. How is your outward appearance representing your inward beliefs?
 
Whether we like it or not, we are judged by our covers before we’re opened up and read. Are you drawing people in or pushing them away?

    I completely agree.. It’s distracting when other women don’t leave anything to the imagination. Women should take pride in themselves and not show off the assets! You can be beautiful without showing too much

    I love that quote – and totally agree. I just wrote a blog post about this actually, that it breaks my heart to see young girls dressing immodestly to draw attention to themselves or their bodies. It’s a hard battle for young women today!

    Fabulous post! I mean, ladies, put your boobs away. You don’t need to look naked for men to think your beautiful. Shame on the media.

    I’ve talked to so many guys and they like women who are confident and don’t have to try so hard.

    Lets respect ourselves a little more and cover up, right?

    A Great read! 🙂 This inspires me to want to post something similar.
