Modest and Judgmental by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/18/11

“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.

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22
