Moderate Modesty

July 15, 2008 at 12:47 pm 1 comment

There’s a discussion about modesty going on over at HomeschoolALUMNI and I jumped in last night to share a few thoughts. Here they are for y’all to read as well:

Modesty stems from the word moderation. To be moderate is to behave (or dress) in such a way as to not draw undue attention to ourselves. Wearing barely-there-clothing draws unnecessary attention that causes people (both men and women) to think certain things of us. But, on the other end of the spectrum, covering ourselves from head to toe in shapeless, colorless, unattractive garb also draws unnecessary attention and creates a notion in people’s minds that Christianity is ugly.

Here are a few more “random” thoughts on the matter:

  • We are not to conform to the world, but we shouldn’t be so far apart that non-Christians daren’t come near us. We are to be a light.
  • Christ is beautiful. We are to be His reflections. Therefore we should present ourselves beautifully.
  • To be modest we must be moderate.
