• “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

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

Cleanse me through the washing of Your Word, and work in my life so that when I see You face to face, I am not ashamed, but I hear well done, My good and faithful daughter.” – Kay Arthur
