Exposing and Emphasizing by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/12/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The Bible doesn’t give us a list of do’s and don’ts when it comes to modesty, but it does tell us, “Clothe yourselves with humility toward one another.”

Here are some suggestions that I think could help us as women humbly dress in a way that helps the men in our lives.

First, be careful about exposing too much. Let me get practical here. What do guys think when they see a slit halfway up the back of your skirt? What do they see when you walk or climb stairs? When you bend over or reach for something?

Second, be careful about what you’re emphasizing. Immodesty can mean partially covering private areas. I’ve heard guys say that partially covering the body can be even more seductive than totally uncovering it. It’s called teasing or tempting.

Can I appeal to you to approach your clothing with a humble heart toward others? It will mean a lot to guys who are trying to please the Lord.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
