Are you a Wife of Modesty?

Are you a woman of modesty ? It’s an important question women must ask themselves as women of God and especially if they are married. What is fashionable is not always respectable.
As a wife, when I purchase my clothes or select outfits to wear, I consider whether my style of dress reflects who I am in Christ as well as the respect I have for myself, my husband, and brothers in Christ in whom I never want to inspire lustful, covetous thoughts. A woman of modesty never dresses to attract the attention of other men or to look “sexy” to them. It doesn’t mean she has to wear sackcloth; it just means that if a woman of God wears an outfit, it shouldn’t be a distraction that blocks her testimony of Christ. It means that she will not put her outer appearance on display for public viewing pleasure!
Out of respect for God, my husband, and myself, my “sexiness” is only for my husband’s private viewing. Other men do not need to be able to perform a mental calculation of  a woman’s body’s measurements! I am a work of art that only my husband can comprehend and appreciate because he is the only man I aim to impress when I get dressed. I dress in such a way that only my husband can “feel” me, while others can actually see Who I represent rather than a visual image that distracts them or tempts them to sin.
I will liken dressing to driving! Women of the world drive recklessly without considering the spiritual or moral safety of other people. She doesn’t care about whose moral records or lives she could potentially put at risk! A woman of modesty dresses defensively! She dresses carefully and thoughtfully in regards to her reputation. She understands that beauty and femininity are not equated with revealing all of herself. She focuses on developing the beauty of her inner woman–her inner disposition– and allows her clothing to be a complement to her character as a woman of God. 1Peter 3:3-5 says,
” Your adornment must not be merely external– braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; 4but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. 5For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands”.
Amen!
Be a woman of modesty.
