Some Things Can't Be Made Modest

Today I am going to be talking about MODESTY! I was doing some shopping at Macy's yesterday when I came across some outfits that were incredibly immodest. I was standing there wondering, "How on EARTH could I make those modest?!" so I thought for a bit and realized that there was no way! There are some things that no matter what you do with them, the only thing they're good for is wearing under stuff. Like, say, this pair of "shorts" that hardly covers anything, and even so there are holes all over them so there's really no point in wearing them at all! There are some things that just can't be made modest. And with those things, no matter how cute or cheap, it's best to just walk away.

     But don't loose hope! Just because there are a lot of clothes that are immodest, that doesn't mean that they ALL are! Sometimes you have to dig around, but living in an immodest world doesn't give us the excuse to dress immodestly. Romans 12:2 says, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Do these "shorts" really look good acceptable and perfect? Not really. So next time you go shopping, remember that even though it may be difficult to find good modest clothes, that doesn't make it okay to wear them anyway.
