Modesty Monday--#4

Who is Modesty For?

Modesty is for:
Our brothers in Christ
(helping them in their struggle against lust)
Those yet to be saved
(a sign of the transforming effect of the Gospel in our lives)
The Savior who redeemed us
(in obedience to His word)

Modesty is a statement of purpose, that I am sanctified (set apart) unto the Lord and His plan for me, and when He blesses me with a marriage partner, I am prepared to be committed, and a blessing. Modesty involves both dress and spirit/demeanor, a gracious spirit, rooted in faith. When a man can trust a woman to be set apart and devoted, not a flirt or distracted into many pleasures, the man can have an easier time learning the path of holiness because she is not a stumblingblock to him.
Proverbs 18:22
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
Proverbs 31:11
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
1 Corinthians 8:9
But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.

I have seen the "I can wear whatever I want" attitude so much lately, it makes me sick. How selfish! I want to make SURE that what I wear does not offend a struggling brother, nor give a feast to the eyes of the unregenerate man. Our dress is indeed an outward display of the beautiful work God is doing in us!
