The Modesty Challenge

Okay, were on the subject of clothing here. There aren't very many boys out there that have pure minds when they look at immodest women. (and immodest girls) Are there? It even starts with little boys! The way they think and the way men think about the immodest women they see, isn't very different. Here is a video I found on Sowers of Hope that I thought was appropriate... (Although, like the women over there mentioned, the music playing at the beginning, I do not approve of.)


So after watching that- finding out what guys really think about the way we dress- does it make you think differently about what you put on, and walk out of the house wearing? It sure made me think differently!

So, I have decided to start a Challenge. This challenge will be to wear only things that are appropriate and modest. Before you put an item of clothing on, ask yourself, 'Does this glorify YHWH?' and 'Will it make not only my brothers in the Messiah, but also the non-believing guys stumble?'
I also think it would be good to remember this scripture verse throughout the week, to remind ourselves of what Elohim wants us to dress like.

 "In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety; not just with braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothing;" 1 Timothy 2:9

 "She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms." Proverbs 31:17

 "She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing [is] silk and purple. Proverbs 31:22

   "Strength and honour [are] her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. Proverbs 31:25

 "Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised." Proverbs 31:29-30

Other than posting pictures of your outfits everyday, that is the only guideline for this challenge. I'm curious whether my fellow blogger friends hold the same convictions I do when it comes to dress. If you'd like to participate, just leave a comment telling me so, along with your blog or website link. :) I hope to see some pictures! This challenge will start on April 13th, and end on April 20th. ;)

  6. Dressing very modestly can be a way to get more attention, if you dress in a way that obviously differs from the rest of the culture that you find yourself in. I don't think dressing modestly necessarily attracts less attention than immodest clothing. Imagine a woman on the beach who has covered up all of her skin, walking among women in bikinis. She will get more attention. She will be noticed. She will stand out. I'm pretty sure people would stumble.

    Well, that's just my two cents.
