10 Seconds To a Better You: #modesty #deathstink
Modesty is spiritual, regardless of the clothes you wear.
Modest Wedding Dress
Modesty is more than clothing, though. I gotta remind myself of this a lot. Your first impression thoughts aren’t ones you can easily control, but how you choose to pursue them or leave them alone is on you. Having modest and chaste thoughts about a person is harder than just dressing the part. If I wear modest stuff, but my initial thoughts are to judge anyone who doesn’t, or to think of them as a bad person because of it, then that makes me no better than the self-righteous pharisee.
You know what’s cool? Modesty in all its various forms!
You’ve got women who decide that they wanna wear dresses and skirts more than other clothing? Nice
Women and girls who wear pants and shorts and shirts that aren’t revealing? Cool
Women and girls who are just discovering about modesty and are going through their wardrobe, getting rid of stuff, or adding undershirts and tights and shrugs to their current outfits? Awesome
Guys who practice modesty? Who wear smart button-ups or who refuse to wear shirts with vulgar language and pictures of explicit stuff (I see it at work and in college)? Who trash the trend of sagging pants? That’s amazing
Modesty is such an amazing virtue, and there are so many ways it can be practiced in everyday life!
