Modest for Your Husband by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/07/11

(answering machine) This is Seeking Him with Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Please leave your question at the tone. (beep)

“Lately, I feel like my husband’s been pressuring me to keep up with the latest fashions. But I really feel like a lot of it is immodest. What should I do?”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I suggest you try to find out what’s motivating your husband and make sure you’re fulfilling his desires in every legitimate way. Are you meeting his physical needs in private? In public, are you dressing attractively? Do you know what kind of clothes and hairstyle he likes?

If you’re doing all you can and he still wants you to dress immodestly, then make a humble appeal. Let him know that you want to please him, that your body is fully available to him, but that you want it to be reserved for his eyes. Then keep making it a matter of prayer, and give God a chance to speak to his heart.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
