Modesty- Something The World Has Lost

1 Timothy 2:9-10
Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.


Modesty- Something the world has lost. When did we lose our self respect? Our love for the Lord?


Warning! The following bible verse may be inappropriate for some ages!


Proverbs 7:10
And behold, the woman meets him, dressed as a prostitute, wily of heart.


The reason I put that verse in here, is to explain what our world has come to. The verse sadly applies to teenagers, many adults, and quite a few children. But why?! They've forgotten of the Lord. They've forgotten how to live by the laws of the bible, and think they exist purely to fit in.


It breaks my heart to see the children on the Lord committing adultery. The reason for most to commit adultery is fitting in. I see so many people feeling like outcasts, and resorting to adultery. So it's best to tell you now- It solves nothing. Adultery usually leads to teen pregnancy, and depression.



1 Corinthians 10:31
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.


Because being modest, doesn't mean being hated. It doesn't mean being made fun of. It means being accepted in the world of God, and following the rules of your father.




And if loving the Lord makes me an outcast- I am. If obeying the Lord gets me abused- So be it. For the love of the Lord is greater than any sin can bring me.



Devotions-
Be modest. Forget what the world- What the people are pushing on you, and focus on obeying the laws of Heaven.



Verse- James 1:15

  1. *Claps* Thank you so much!

    This is something so confusing in PS. I see so many kids my age in shorts so short, they might as well be wearing swimsuit bottoms. Transparent shirts, low cut... ): It's sad what people have resorted to, and how they handle it.

    It's weird, but I try not to wear skin-tight clothes, and to dress in ways that honor the Lord. I read this thing, and it said "If your mother wouldn't wear it, you shouldn't!"

    That explains exactly how I think I should be.
