Starting Young by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/05/11

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

“I look at what teenagers are wearing now, and it really scares me for my five-year-old daughter. She’s going to face so much pressure to wear immodest clothing when she grows up. What can I do now to help get her ready for that?

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Well, let me say that it’s good that you’re starting young! Don’t wait until your daughter is a pre-teen to address these issues.

Starting young means dressing your daughter modestly now. Don’t put her in skimpy outfits when she’s little expecting her to change her look once she grows up.

Another thing you can do is to model godly choices. Help her understand what modesty is and how it affects your clothing. Rather than throwing a lot of rules at her, keep your emphasis on the heart. Show her how a heart for the Lord can be seen in clothing choices that honor Him.

If you have the courage to address these issues now, you’ll be glad as your daughter gets older.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
