I was just recently at a sleepover with my Soul Sisters (aka Lauren and Kaiti). The theme was God’s temple and we did a Bible study on keeping our bodies pure for Him. 1 Timothy 2:9 & 10 says, ‘I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.’ In light of this, what are you wearing, inside and out? Is it good and pleasing to God?
One of the main things that we talked about was not drawling attention to yourself, mainly in the things that you wear, but also in the way that you act. When we are constantly trying to soak in all of the spot light, there is no room, at all, for God to be there, shining His glory and power. In all actuality, we have nothing to display of ourselves. Nothing. The only thing that we have to display that is beautiful is Christ Jesus and all of His glory. We possess no really beauty at all, except when we cloth ourselves with good deeds, and with Him.
Is what you are wearing good, pleasing, and reflecting off God, so that everyone sees Him? Or does what you do only draw attention to yourself?
