I’m writing this post and it is 30 degrees outside! I cannot even start to picture spring break which is next week, with the weather this way. Whether the weather permits it or not, the break is still upon us! This brings me to the main reason for this post, not only to ask what are your plans? But, are those plans kingdom driven, God honoring, and brother honoring? It’s no surprise that tons of us think beaches and Islands when we think spring break! I ask because for years, I never even thought about those 3 questions? They not only apply during spring break, but throughout every season and every moment in a believers life. They’re important for us to always ask ourselves. Fashion is fun, spring break is fun, and hot weather is fun (for me anyways)! Enjoy this season, and be reminded that we get to worship God in all things, even the way we buys clothes, and the way we get ready each day!
God Honoring Intentions?
As godly women we must constantly ask ourselves, what type of woman do I look like? A woman of God or a woman of the culture and/or the world? This is vital in gauging what decisions we will choose to make in that moment, and what decisions we will choose to make next.
We must also ask ourselves do my choices, actions, desires, and wardrobe look any different than the worlds? Let those four areas help to set us apart! In order to know where we stand on those four topics we must evaluate our intentions and heart.
Do I care about honoring my Creator, or would I rather fit in with the crowd? Remember, we can be in the crowd but as God honoring children of the King we will surly stand out! When our hearts desire to honor God those around us will always see us as distinctly apart! And how wonderful, that those around us might see the glory of God, because of the way we choose to live our lives.
Why Modesty Matters
First, ask yourself, is your desire to bring glory to God? Do you hope that when others see you they see the father? Also ask yourself, do you love your brothers enough to honor them, by dressing appropriately when you’re in front of them? When you choose to say yes to these questions you are not only honoring your brothers, you are also honoring your heavenly Father. In 1 Timothy 2:9, Paul encourages us to “dress in modest apparel”. I believe that verse still applies to us today in 2019.
- It is Biblical– 1 Timothy 2:9, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
- It’s an act of worship– we as believers can choose to make every moment of our days an act of worshiping God. Even when we dress our bodies, we can send praise to our Father for health, clothing, and the ability to keep it holy!
- There is no mistaking that it sets us apart from the world. Just look at every magazine in your grocery store isle, you can easily see modesty is non existent.
- It’s about God and His glory. We as daughters of the King, never want to dilute Gods glory. We never want to take the attention off nor hinder the gospel.
