• “When human reason has exhausted every possibility, the children can go to their Father and receive all they need.…For only when you have become utterly dependent upon prayer and faith, only when all human possibilities have been exhausted, can you begin to reckon that God will intervene and work His miracles.” – 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.
