I'll Take a Shot at It

Hey, I've been thinking about doing a series of post on modesty, and in my devotional for this month there is a four part series, so I thought I'd use them.

"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works." I Tim. 2:9-10 KJV

"The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment" Luke 12:23 KJV

"Does God care about what you wear? I mean, really-isn't He too busy running the universe? Does how you dress really matter to Him? It does. He tells us this in His Word.

You will either be the victim of your culture or the champion of what is right in this matter. Hmmm... victim or champion?

What is culture teaching this generation about dress? Well, let's think about it for a moment. Culture seems to say the following:

  • It has to be a popular brand name.
  • It should be advertised by some pop-culture brand, team, or icon.
  • If it's on a girl, it should be tight, low-cut, or revealing.
  • If it's on a guy, it should be baggy and sloppy looking.
  • If it's denim, it should be rough, worn, and with holes.
  • If it's dressy, it should be skimpy or see-through.
  • If it's tucked in, it's "out."
  • If it's for a man, it could look feminine.
  • If it's for a woman, it should get attention
  • The sloppier looking, the cooler it is.

In short, if it's immodest, sloppy, trendy, faddish, or rebellious looking- it's in! And if you wear these things- you're in! What's that about? Come on! Please tell me you're slightly smarter than your culture thinks!

Okay- do you really want to be and automaton- mindlessly moved about by the dictator of pop-culture? Do you want pop-culture to drag you around with a ring in your nose telling you how to live and what to wear?"
