Another Reason for Modesty

As Princess Catherine and Princess Izori have pointed out in their posts, modesty is important because it can help you be a witness for Christ and can even help to keep you safe from dangerous situations and unwanted attention. In this post I'd like to share with you yet another reason that modesty is important.

Modesty helps the guys around us to keep their minds pure.

Guys are wired differently than girls are, so when they see girls who are showing inappropriate parts of their bodies(i.e. cleavage, stomach, large part of their back, too much of their legs, etc.) by wearing tight, short, or low clothing, their minds go to places that they shouldn't venture into. They can easily start thinking impure thoughts, to the extreme.

Because God made us differently, we girls don't have as much of a problem with things like that, but that doesn't mean we don't have a responsibility to do what we can to help our future husbands and our brothers in Christ. If we will steer clear of immodest clothing and dress in an appropriate way that honors the Lord, it can make a difference. Instead of the guys being wrapped up in thinking about our bodies, they can see us and talk to us without being distracted.

It must be frustrating to them when they're trying to keep their minds pure to see a Christian girl, wearing revealing clothes, walking around not bothering to help them in this matter. Please realize I don't mean to point fingers or condemn, but this is the truth. I've seen many Christian girls dress immodestly(in my opinion) while they think what they're wearing is fine. This can distract guys and cause them to sin in thinking wrong thoughts.

Also, whenever you meet your future husband, wouldn't it be great if you two could have a relationship that was based more on Christ than on physical appearances? Wouldn't you like for him to like you and love you for who you are, not how you look? Why not start practicing to dress modestly now?

I'm not asking you to dress down, dress in a dumpy manner, or to not be fashionable, but please take a look at how you are dressing and what you are wearing. We don't want to be a hindrance to a guy's walk with the Lord. Let's help them out by being modest!

  2. Gloria,

    I know that it really ticks me off when I see girls wearing stuff that's inappropriate, especially when my brother's around. He's only a year younger then me, and we do alot of stuff together. Him always being there by me reminds me to stay modest in my dress, and I wish the other girls would see that. It's been a struggle for my bro. sometimes, and I can understand why. There wired to be more visual, which can be a good or bad thing. I think us girls need to remember that.


  3. I agree with you: we need to remember that guys are visual and that they are more easily distracted with a girl's physical appearance than we are. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Gloria, exellent work! This is something many Christian girls struggle with, and something that cannot be over-emphasized. It is good to realize how different guys are, so that as Chirst-following girls, intent on purity of ourselves and those around us, can help guys and girls alike dress in a God honoring way. (1 Timothy 2:9-10)

  5. This is soooooooooooooooooooooo true in our lifes!
    In christ,
