I literally just watched this video that several people had posted on Facebook and found myself thinking over and over things like "Yes!" "Amen!" "Exactly!"
So now you know how I feel about it.
I decided to throw together a quick post because the immodesty in today's society is downright making me mad. I really try not to rant in my facebook statuses and I've been doing pretty good with that lately. But the other day I was bombarded with barely dressed moms and saying I was mad is a serious understatement. I wanted to get into each of their faces and yell, "Have you no dignity??!!" But instead I ranted on facebook.
This passion for modesty is not something I've always had. In fact, most of my life I was just sorta oblivious to it. I've never been super immodest, just kinda careless. I've always believed in modesty but honestly had no idea of the importance. I think many Christian women fall into this category - we can literally be unaware of our own immodesty. That doesn't make it okay.
I am a new woman. And for good reason.
On the flip side, it does break my heart. I hurt for all the women who are trapped by the lie that revealing "everything but their mother's maiden name" somehow gives them power... Although I think most women want to feel wanted so much more than they want to feel power. Dressing bikini-style will definitely make you desirable... in all the wrong ways.
Please, watch this video. You will not regret it.
(I'm sorry for just posting a link. Posting video on blogger is annoying and time consuming!)
If you have an opinion, I would actually love to discuss this further. Please share your thoughts!
