It’s not all about what’s on the outside…
God doesn’t want us to be chasing after superficial things like looks instead we are to be chasing after him in our lives. He wants us to change our focus from things the world approves of to things he approves of. For he ultimately wants us to be more like him.
Even Jesus was a man of average appearance (Isaiah 53:2) he was made
that way so that people would get to know him for his character and teachings,
rather than be distracted by his beauty. Those that followed Jesus followed him
because of those specific attributes, which we should emulate.
Remember Lucifer was an angel ‘perfect in beauty’ unfortunately he
became wicked and we all know how that story ended (Ezekiel 28:11-19).

What is modesty? It’s an interesting term. It technically
means “the quality of being relatively
moderate” in other words humble. Yet why is it so strongly linked with
clothing especially with people of faith?
Modesty and clothing work hand in hand because what we
choose to wear sets a representation of who we are. The bible often stresses
the importance for women to dress humbly – Humbly because their bodies are a
temple of Christ and humbly as not to be seen objectively by men.
In today’s hyper PC (politically correct) culture, it’s hard
to have conversations with other women about the way we dress and what
narrative that creates of us. People will stress that women should be able to
dress however they want whenever they want e.g. Slut Walk. I agree, to an
extent. When women dress a certain way, there is often an intention, I know, I
do it as well. If I’m aware my Ex-boyfriend will be at a party, I’m going to
dress sexier than if I was going to the shops or an interview, with intention.
I want my Ex to realize I’m doing absolutely fine without him.

In today’s age we are constantly reminded of what society deems as sexy
or body confidence. However, their version of sexy is always changing causing
more confusion for those who are trying to attain that level of approval.
Most media outlets show us that the less clothes you have on the more
confidence you have in your body. But do we really need to be showing more skin
to feel sexy or confident in who we are? We don’t think so! There are so many
other things that can define your sexy other than showing more skin. That’s why
it is very important to find what makes you feel sexy and not what the world
says you should do to feel sexy.
The bible tells us in 1 Timothy 2:9-10 “I
also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning
themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive
clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship

I remember when I started high school. I didn’t have the conventional, ‘graduated from year 6 and then move to year 7 with some of my primary school friends’, scenario.
