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.

    I have a 3 CD series by Nancy Leigh DeMoss which I purchased about 20 years ago. I would like to get more copes of this series, and have actually tried (unsuccessfully) to rip and burn the contents of the CD's since they are so old and I haven't found them available online. Could someone please help me to find more copies? Thank you! Lori Gulley, 925 Red Clay Road, Cleveland, TN 37311 (423)544-7374
