Modesty In Dress

Over the past month I have had occasion to speak to a few different people about modesty in dress. I have had discussion with parents about teaching their girls about modesty as well as women who were wondering about biblical modesty. This subject deserves more than I can give it here but I at least wanted to pass along a portion of CJ Mahaney’s sermon titled “The Soul of Modesty.” It is about 15 minutes long and not only worth you watching, regardless of where you are in age or place in life, but it is also worth sitting down with your teenagers and watching. I also wanted to include one for the guys. While the way women dress certainly play a role in our purity of heart, let us be clear that James teaches that “...each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.” (James 1:14)  So the lust in our heart comes not, ultimately, from the way a woman is dressed but from our own sinful desires.  Here is a really good article called “Fighting Lust With Lust.” I pray these two resources help you.
