Examining modesty, pt. 1


By Anna Grace Wood - Posted at The Cross Is All We Need:
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.” 
Luke 6: 46, “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” 
John 14: 15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

When we hear the word modesty, our first thought is usually about how women should or shouldn’t dress. While modesty does address the way we choose to clothe our bodies, it isn’t just about clothing. It’s a reflection of who we are in Christ.
