• “But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.” – Amy Carmichael

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.

Verse of the Day

[God the Sovereign Savior] To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord, who spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. And he said: I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. — Psalm 18:1-2 (NKJV)
