Hello, there! I’m Christopher, which you should have known if you saw my cute little green logo. So, let me not distract you from the following post. I hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’re done reading it! Enjoy!
“From Christopher 164’s blogsite, this is “The Lashback” with Christopher.”
If I seriously had a category that was “The Lashback,” then no one would come over to my site. Now, this is a devotion. And I am going to tackle a controversial issue in honor of the 164th day of my site, which is today. So here we go.
All right, immodesty is wrong. Yes it is. There at least two problems that I am going to mention.
The first problem is that your purity is at stake. But I’m not here to get into that. Instead, you can read this post (LINK) written by one of my friends, Trent Blake, who exposes the matter very well.
But I want to talk about the other problem with immodesty. The thing that the girls aren’t actually sinning, but causing others to sin, which makes them sin, if that made sense. One word: LUST.
Yep, I said it, lust. Seeing those body parts may be like seeing candy in the eyes of a small child.
Well, why am I bringing this up? Well, something struck me about a month or two ago. Go find your Bibles and read Luke 17:1-3.
Did you read it?
Strong words, everyone! The immodest person is sinning worse because she (or he sometimes) is making the other gender lust.
I just wanted that small point to hit home, that’s all. And this is not just for immodesty, but in all aspects of life and in all situations.
Anyways, I want to close this very short devotion (or a Crazy, Random Thought) with a bunch of quotes that will help you think about this topic of immodesty.
(NOTE: I came up with the idea of the devotion before reading these comments. And these comments were duplicated with permission.)
Female: ...choosing to be truly modest is something we will never regret.
Male: ... modesty is highly attractive to one who looks at the character of the heart... Don't be fooled... God knew what He was doing...
Female: The most important thing about dressing modestly is that we are doing it for God. . . . I'm not dressing a certain way because I'm afraid of what guys will think about me, but because I want to glorify God. I don't have to be afraid about looking beautiful if I'm dressing God, because I won't be flaunting my figure, but simply looking nice. As I like to say, I want to be beautiful, not sexy - there's a big difference!
Female (in reply to above comment): I think part of dressing for God is being very aware of what makes guys stumble, and, in a way, helping them out by avoiding those things, whatever they may be, within reason, to glorify God.
Female: An attractive guy with no shirt causes us too falter as much as a girl in a bikini does for guys.
Female: I am aware that there is a difference in admiring a guys looks and lusting, I have no problem with guys wearing things that make them look attractive, I am not asking them to look ugly, as neither are they of us! Being fashionable, in style, clean, and attractive looking is good, we want to be presentable and not look like slobs; that is respecting the body God has given us just as much as being modest is. When it crosses the line, I think, is when clothing and actions suggest sexual things, such as a low cut shirts for girls/unbuttoned-a-little-too-much shirts for guys suggest the absence of clothing in those areas, as well as tight/flashy clothing around the crotch suggests a don't-you-want-to-see-what-is-underneath attitude. I do not want guys to unattractive, that would be unfortunate! Lol. :) Just as it is perfectly OK for them to appreciate our inner and outer beauty, as long as that beauty is not appreciated in a sexual way.
Male: Seriously, I recently saw a girl who wasn’t wearing tight jeans, and it actually looked pretty cute. Modesty, everyone!!!
Hello again! I’m so happy you finished reading my post, and, boy, do I hope you liked it!
