"Button Every Button!"

MODESTY is not a word that is very esteemed in today’s culture. Beauty can really be a snare to the opposite sex, and we all should consider that and dress accordingly—so we do not cause men to lust in their hearts.

Do you dress suggestively to draw attention to yourself?

Fisherman buy beautiful, sparkling lures to catch trout. Often, Satan uses enticements to get humans in trouble. Dressing sensuously—can be a lure that can lead to sin (…after sin, after sin…) and all its consequences.

When my girls became teenagers, I told them I wanted to become Amish, so I could dress them in long black dresses with high necks! It is a constant struggle for my daughters to find modest, fashionable clothes they like—that are not revealing, provocative or sensuous. As they leave the house, I am inclined to yell, “Button every button!”

Dress in ways that make you look nice and stylish—without crossing the line.

I aggree! Oddly enough, my mom sometimes thinks the opposite of me. We were in Old Navy and I was trying on a skirt.. toooo short, and my mom was trying to get me to buy it, then there was a shirt that was toooo low, and she said that it would be okay for me to wear something like that now that I'm a Christian! (Before I was a Christian I was known for well, not so good stuff) I should also mention I'm the only Christian in my family. But, I told her that I'd like to keep a modest attitude as well as appearence.
Thanks for reminding me!
