Modesty Quiz 2
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What do you believe about clothing and modesty? Here’s a quick true-or-false quiz to help you get started thinking about the issue.
“True or false? Modesty means being outdated, dumpy, and unattractive.”
Nancy: That’s false. We may not be able to wear all the popular trends, but it really is possible to be modest and fashionable.
“Our clothes and appearance reveal a lot about our values, characters, and beliefs.”
Nancy: That one’s true. A woman’s clothing and appearance are powerful nonverbal communicators of what she believes.
“What I wear isn’t anyone else’s business. I should be free to dress however I want.”
Nancy: And that’s false. Everything we do, including the way we dress, affects others. As Christian women, we want to be sensitive to the men around us and not put any temptation in their path.
Would you ask God to help you glorify Him in what you wear?

What are your thoughts on ladies' dress? Do you have any personal thoughts on dress guidelines or boundaries you'd like to share? Do you ever struggle (as I do) with dressing to be attractive for your husband while remaining "above reproach" with regard to modesty?
