so, i was browsing around, and i found joshua harris's blog. i'm not sure if he's the same guy that wrote i kissed dating goodbye, but it seems like it.
so he referenced a blog by girltalk about girls wearing modest clothes at their own wedding. being a girl, i never really thought about it, probably because i'm not one to wear unmodest attire.
but this is a subject that goes farther than just weddings (i'm sure you will agree). maybe not so much at church (well, at least mine), but maybe at church functions like youth group activities or picnics. but even in secular settings like prom.
i went to prom, and i wore something that was modest (long skirt and a top that had sleeves), and as i compared myself to my peers at the dance, i found myself looking very similar to the mormons that i knew of at school. now, i'm not mormon, but it's sad that i was the only christian who wasn't a mormon that decided to dress more modestly than my other christian girl peers. now i realize that my figure is probably not as attractive as others and that it's b/c of that that i decided to dress modestly (and probably the reason that i went by myself j/k), but even if i were, it's still not right to dress immodestly.
but the thing is, i'm not sure how to help some of my sisters understand the importance of modesty. i could tell them that it makes their brothers stumble, but their response would probably be," keep up with the times, cindy! they're not going to. they're probably used to it by now." but are boys really "immune" to immodest clothing that girls wear these days? granted, i don't know, and i don't want to know what goes on in a guy's head, but i am inclined to believe that it's not true that boys are" immune" to it.
now i'm not going to ask girls to think "what would Jesus wear?" but just think, if Jesus were around you, would you wear such attire? now i'm not asking people to wear clothes that came out of "little house on the prairie" either. just use good judgement.
