• “Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.” – Basilea Schlink

Your Philosophy Is Showing by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/17/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The world’s view of clothing and fashion is quite different from the biblical view. Let’s take a minute and compare the world’s philosophy . . .

“You’ve got to dress so people notice you.”

Nancy: . . . with God’s idea.

“We choose clothing that glorifies God.”

“Clothes are for attracting attention.”

“The purpose of clothing is to cover and conceal the body.”

Nancy: Modesty is really a way of thinking about God, about men, and about ourselves.

“It’s just your body—do what you want with it.”

“Your body is God’s home—take care of it.”

“If you are going to be loved, first you have to be beautiful and alluring.”

“You are loved by God. He made you beautiful for His glory.”

Nancy: What do your clothing choices say about what you believe? Are you being influenced by the world’s philosophy? Or is your thinking based on the Word and the ways of God?

“What you wear reflects your heart.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth
