What if modesty isn’t about the length of our shorts or the amount of exposed skin? Could modesty be more than that? Could it be about something going on in our hearts? Even the most popular scripture passage used to encourage us to dress modestly is likely more about wearing name brands and flaunting wealth than wearing tight clothes. In today’s episode, I tackle the tricky issue of modesty. I’ll use lots of scripture and examples–whether you grew up measuring your skirt length or have never thought about the concept of modesty in your life–there’s something in this episode for you! We’ll talk about humility, honoring God, and honoring others. I’ll tell my biggest mistakes in the arena of modesty and what I’ve learned about how to trust the Holy Spirit in this arena. Together, we’ll take a grace-based look at how to approach the topic of modesty and what to do when those around you don’t define modesty in the same way you do. How can you be kind to sisters in Christ who may interpret things differently or be at a different place in their walk with Christ? Great suggestions are in this episode.
