Modesty has its Purpose

Modesty has its purpose. I wish more mothers and daughters would dress modestly in public. I wish mothers would tell their daughters this especially. I have seen all to often young girls/women aged 13-17 attending church showing cleavage and wearing short short mini skirts with flip flops on their feet. Are we so caught up in the age of 'everybody is right' in expressing themselves no matter how we do it?  Mother's teach your daughters modesty. It will serve them all their life. And, mothers too dress modestly, so you daughter will learn it from you.

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 God."

Another problem I see among women (as you read, these messages come from the point of view of a sociologist who is in the constant mode of observation), is the tendency to commiserate. That means to get together 'jump on the same band wagon' and gossip about other women or complain about life, their job, their husbands and their kids as if by doing so they will prove themselves right; or worse, their complaint is actually directed toward God as they are angry with Him for their lot in life.

I beg you as a Christian woman, wife and mother, to know and accept that you are in the place now that you should be in... Praise God for it and see how life improves. Sing Praise to the Lord with all your soul, and praise the Lord all your life  Psalm 146
