Modesty and the Bible

About six years ago I got to thinking about what I wore. I was a gal who loved her jeans. I had the nick name, Jean Machine. But I felt that I was not wearing what my Father in Heaven would desire me to wear. My pre-teen daughter and I study on what we should be wearing, and the main verse that popped up was Deuteronomy 22:5

King James Version
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

We decided together that we needed to start wearing ladies clothing. Dresses, skirts, and the like. At first it wasn’t easy, but we knew it was the right thing to do for ourselves, others, and our Heavenly Father.

Below is a link to an article that talks more about Biblical Modesty.

A teen girl and her thoughts on modesty

I certainly wish more ladies would decide to dress modest. To me, it is unfair to  my husband, son and other men who are striving to do the will of our Heavenly Father and have to see the women in our world today so immodest in their dress and actions.

Below are some more Bible verses on Biblical modesty:

Scripture regarding modesty

Now, there was a time, that I struggled with what should I wear…a long skirt down to the ground, a skirt that goes to the knees, should it be stylish or is that too worldly, or should I look like a just get off the set from Little House on the Prairie…  I decided that I am a child of the King and there is no reason for me to look frumpy and there was nothing wrong with stylish clothes. I do not need to go around in long skirts, sneakers, and sweaters. There is enough beautiful clothing out there to dress, look, and feel good about myself  as the King’s daughter.

Shalom
