Ladies, modesty plays a major part in our Christian lives. But it’s easy to fall into fashion trends, and often without thought for whether our choices go against Christian teaching. Often, we justify immodesty by arguing that it could be worse, or that certain degrees of immodesty is okay because a Christian friend dresses the same way, or maybe we don’t strive for modesty at all because we feel that it’s the guy’s responsibility to avoid the sin of lust.
Last year I wrote the post What Do Christian Guys Really Think About Sexual Purity?, which offered insight into how boys think and what they actually thought about modesty. Ladies, if you knew your brother in Christ was struggling on a daily basis, would you help him out? Or would you say too bad, it’s his problem?
The following clip is a sermon based on young Christian men’s struggles with immodesty. It’s pretty eye-opening and may even surprise you. And for Christian teens who strive for modesty, I pray it strengthens your faith and your desire to stay modest in your fashion.
If they had any idea what went through guys’ minds, it would probably vastly change the way they dress.
Ladies, clothes shopping for a Christian girl is not just difficult because every item has to be scrutinized for modesty, but also because modest selections are few and far between in our culture.
But Christian girls must glorify God in everything that they say and do, which includes how they dress. So don’t despair, girls…your desire to please our Lord God exceeds fashion. And the good news is that you can still find modest and pretty outfits–just check out our weekly Modest Is Hottest posts for design ideas!
Girls, did this sermon surprise you? Do you you feel it’s your responsibility as a Christian to be modest? Do you feel alone in your desire to dress modestly, or does it not bother you?
