• “I was poor in the midst of riches, and ready to perish with hunger near a table plentifully spread and a continual feast. Oh, Beauty, ancient and new! Why have I known thee so late? Alas, I sought thee where thou wast not, and did not seek thee where thou wast…” – Madame Guyon

Against the Flow by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/29/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When’s the last time you thought about modesty?

“I didn’t think about modesty at all until this lady at church brought it up and started talking to me about it.”

Nancy: The Bible exhorts women to “adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control.” But the truth is, a lot of women just go with the flow when it comes to fashion.

“I decided to throw out half my wardrobe!”

Nancy: If you’ve never given modesty much thought, here are some questions you might ask yourself:

  • Am I dressing for the attention of others or for God’s glory?
  • Do my choices reflect discretion and self-control?
  • Am I evaluating my wardrobe by God’s Word or by the latest fashion magazine?

If you’ve just been going with the flow, would you ask God to help you evaluate your wardrobe? Is there anything in it that doesn’t reflect well on Him?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
