“I’ve heard you talk about modesty, and I couldn’t agree more! I’ve watched styles come and go for decades, and I’ve always been modest.”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It’s possible to have a modest appearance and yet have a self-righteous, judgmental attitude.
“Our church has a bus ministry, and the way these young people show up just shocks me! I want to say, ‘If you want to dress like that, just stay home.’”
Nancy: True beauty is internal and spiritual. We ought to honor God through the way we dress, but our outward appearance should be a reflection of an inward spirit that’s pure and submissive to Christ.
“And the pastor’s wife . . . oh, don’t get me started on her!”
Nancy: Would you ask God to help you communicate modesty to others in a winsome way? Ask Him to help you speak truth with a tender and compassionate heart.
Cultivating a modest and gentle heart is an important part of seeking Him.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
