guest post: thoughts on modesty.
hellooo blog ladies!
my name is jay, AKA arielle’s hubby.
i thought i’d share my take on modesty to hopefully give some insight into a guy’s thoughts on the subject. so here it goes. :) modesty is not old fashioned…
take a glance at a magazine cover, turn on the tv, walk through a mall, or walk into a church even, and you will see women dressed and adorned in a way that practically asks for the lustful attention of men. it breaks my heart to know that so many women, especially those bought and redeemed by the blood of Christ, find so much self-worth in the attention men give them based solely on outward appearance.
“for you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
1 cor. 6:20
the truth is, this is a daily battle for us men. it doesn’t stop. everywhere we turn we are bombarded by women dressing this way and we have to fight off the temptation to look or entertain thoughts of a lustful and sinful nature. by dressing modestly, you not only help your brothers in the faith, but you demonstrate where you find your identity and self-worth, in Christ. and that is the most attractive and beautiful thing you could put on display!
“charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
i’ve added a great video sharing other men’s hearts on modesty…check it out:
