A Few Modesty Questions

2011 at 4:23 pm   |   by Nicole Whitacre Filed under Biblical Womanhood | Modesty

For my heart:

In choosing what clothes to wear, whose attention do I desire and whose approval do I crave? Am I seeking to please God or impress others?

Is what I wear consistent with biblical values of modesty, self-control and respectable apparel, or does my dress reveal an inordinate identification and fascination with sinful cultural values?

Who am I trying to identify with through my dress? Is the Word of God my standard or the latest fashion?

Does my clothing reveal an allegiance to the gospel or is there any contradiction between my profession of faith and my practice of godliness?

What do my clothes say about my heart?

For my wardrobe (adapted from Nancy DeMoss):

With my dress, am I guilty of…

...exposing intimate parts of the body?


...emphasizing private or alluring parts of the body?

”[W]omen should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control.” 1 Timothy 2:9
