As I a home by myself during the day -time I tend to keep the tele going on low volume to make me feel there is someone else in the room. It is nice to have low voices chatting away as I do dishes or type away at my blogs. This week has been busy as I daily wrote articles for the “Is This Modest” blog, which I do monthly.
Researching this fall’s trends has left me almost speechless with the plunging neckline, reaching depths I never thought possible! I have recently also been seeing it on celebs making their appearance on daytime tv…like Kelly Clarkson this week. Her neckline reached the centre of her abdomen, below her chest! I was so shocked at the disgusting look and was thankful for her small chested frame or else it may have been terrifying.
To the virtuous warriors out there, those who strive for pure beauty, keep going. The battle will continue as the world is falling deeper into sin as time goes on, but you must keep your standards high. Fashion is beautiful, fun and creative but your modesty and the possibility of sinning is not worth it. Check out this quote and consider it each time you dress for the outside world.
Arthur Pink years ago said, “By clear and necessary implication Christ here (Matt 5:27-30) also forbade the using of any other of our senses and members to stir up lust. If lustful looking is so grievous a sin then those who dress and expose themselves with desires to be looked at and lusted after as Jezebel who painted her face, tried her head and looked out of the window are not less but perhaps more guilty. In this matter it is not only too often the case that men sin but women tempt them so to do, how great then must be the guilt of the great majority of the modern misses who deliberately seek to arouse the sexual passions of our young men. And how much greater still is the guilt of most of their mothers for allowing them to become lascivious temptresses.”
Wow, powerful quote, but very true. Be worthy of the title virtuous warrior.
