• “God, You created me woman. You know what You designed for me to be. I don’t want to be a foolish woman. I want to fulfill Your purpose for me. Speak to me through Your Word. 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

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.

  • “If I am content to heal a hurt slightly, saying ‘Peace, peace,’ where is no peace; if I forget the poignant word ‘Let love be without dissimulation’ and blunt the edge of truth, speaking not right things but smooth things, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael
