Why Modesty Is Important

“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel…”Ā 
1 Timothy 2:9
“As Christian girls, it is our responsibility to raise the moral bar, not lower it. It is our duty to lead our culture towards modesty and decency, not away from it.” ~ Unknown
Ladies, let’s dress to impress God always rather than men. If you expect men to behave like gentlemen, then be modest in your dress, actions, and character.

“Authentic femininity is a combination of class, tenderness, and virtue… When a woman possesses these traits, a man will naturally want to be more of a gentleman around her.” ~ Jason Evert

“The way we dress affects the way we think, the way we feel, the way we act, and the way others react to us.” ~ Judith Rasband

Modesty isn’t about a list of rules, it’s about reflecting God’s holiness and purity through our clothing.

“We cannot give our hearts to God and keep our bodies for ourselves.” ~ Elisabeth Elliot
“You can dress attractively without being immodest. Within the Lord’s guidelines, there is room for you to be lively, vibrant, and beautiful both in your dress and in your actions.” ~ Thomas S. Monson
Modesty is not really about clothing, guys, or your body. It’s about Jesus, and we need to be glorifying Him in everything we do ~ including how we dress.
“To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle, she is gracious, she is godly, and she is giving. You and I have the gift of femininity… the more womanly we are, the more manly men will be and the more God is glorified. Be women, be only women, be real women in obedience to God.” ~ Elisabeth Elliot

Would you be comfortable with what you’re wearing in the Lord’s presence?
