    Modesty Is Not What You Wear…

    Girls, a reader of Project Inpired (who happens to be a father and grandfather of girls) emailed me a wonderful letter about modesty. I just had to share some of his thoughts on the subject with you! XOXO, Nicole

    Since the time of the Egyptian pharaohs and their women, we have seen the powerful appetite that women have to be noticed and observed. This often is because of something–a technique or a substance or striking items of adornment–that is used to stimulate the minds of those who look at them, males and females.

    Very often, even “church” girls and women toss out the door the attitudes of inner beauty, a humble and meek character and discerning modesty, replacing them with the internal blind pride that seeks eyes which covet the flesh and the goddess that stands like a drive-by billboard.

    Jesus explained that Satan has blinded the eyes of those that proclaim to be wise. God has opened the eyes to those that will come to Him as a simple child and allow Him to clean out our minds of this world’s polluted practices and give us all a humble and contrite heart.

    Modesty is not what you wear or how you wear it!

    Modesty is the condition of the heart and mind!

    Modesty is saying, “Jesus, please come in my closet and show me what to wear!”

    Jesus,when I walk with you or for you, I want to be sure people are looking at my inner adornment, the light of humility and meekness glowing and radiating so you will be glorified.
