As a teenage girl in the 21st century I am sure you have heard the phrase “modest is hottest.” But, what does it really mean to dress modestly?

When I say “modesty” I mean dressing in a way that is classy and covers what it needs to. It isn’t revealing or distracting and is FullSizeRender (92)tasteful. In the media we often see women dressed in revealing clothes and they are glorified for it. There are many women who are amazing at singing, dancing, acting, and many more things and should be looked up to for this! But when you simply look up to a woman for how she dresses, as a Christian we should be careful of this. Women like Sadie Robertson and Mary Kate who dress with class and are famous and well-loved, these are people I strive to look up to for the way they live and present themselves. As a Christian in a world where everyone does whatever they want, it can be challenging to keep a view of “modesty”. I encourage you to keep your values, because this life we live is not for ourselves, but for God.  1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” This verse tells us that are bodies do not belong to us, they belong to God, so therefore we need to take care of them and show them off in ways that respect Him. They were bought by Jesus dying on the cross. I would also like to add the fact that this is a hot topic in the world, so if you do not agree please respect this view that I have as a Christian.

You are capable of much more than dressing pretty.
