I’m Pentecostal, and we’re all for modesty. I belong to a huge council/district of churches, and they’re really strict on the dresscode. Which I don’t mind. A young woman, or man, of God should always look respectful and representable.
For us though, it means men don’t wear shorts, they don’t go around topless. Woman don’t cut their hair to extreme shortness, don’t wear pants or anything too tight or above the knees, we cover up and don’t wear makeup or jewelry. We can’t get tattoos, or piercings, or out of the ordinary hair colors. But that’s okay.
Our bodies are the temple of Christ. Why should he want him to come into an immodest temple?
Yes it’s hard sometimes, and I used to get frustrated. Now a days, to see a woman in pants is the norm, and I used to love wearing pants. But as I started becoming closer to God, I figured that I wanted to sacrifice and change something of my physical self to please him. (In no way am I implying that if you wear pants as a female, God will not be pleased with you. I’m telling you why I do it myself)
I wanted to sacrifice my wants to please him. And oddly enough, because of this change God has made my self esteem go up to an all time high! I feel so beautiful now. Where before I felt like a slob, no joke.
Other people may see it as something simple, but God sees it as an offering.
And who says being modest isn’t cute??
If you ever want to know places to shop modestly, visit: Ross, Roses, Target, H&M, I honestly can’t remember all the places I shop right now. But the pictures above are a great way to start off if you decide to make the change!
