Modesty Matters

Modest Apparel

"A heart of modesty affects every aspect of a woman's life-

not just the way she looks but her attitudes and the way

she talks and acts, as well.

Modesty is an attitude of the heart (1 Timothy 3:2) as well as a manner of dress (1 Timothy 2:9). Modesty considers how we think about ourselves in relation to God, which is reflected in the way we dress.

Modesty realizes that being "in Christ" means the believer does not need to gain lustful attention through boasting or revealing clothing. It considers the weaknesses of others and strives not to contribute to a spiritual downfall.

Are women the only ones who need to be modest or are men also accountable? I think there is no question men are accountable. Male followers of Christ should take modesty seriously also.
