Why is Modesty Important?

Modesty is hard.  I admit it, staying modestly dressed takes commitment and struggle in this day and age.  I love fashion and really enjoy shopping, but when I put that and modesty together in this culture I’m faced with a challenge.  If it’s high in the front it’s low in the back.  If it’s modest on top it’s short on the bottom.  But I have always been taught to be modest by my parents, at retreats, and by the church.  Whatever I wear gets the “yes” or “no” of my parents and I just go with that.  I have always been told what to do…but why?  Why do I have to spend an extra few hours shopping to get that shirt with a neckline 3in higher or that bathing suit that gives more coverage?  What is the point?

I would like to share with you 5 reasons why being modest is so important.  Hopefully you can take these reasons to heart and strive to be more modest because of them. Continue reading “Why is Modesty Important?”
