Yesterday the question of “The bikini” was brought up on the facebook group. It was definitely good food for thought and a timely reminder of how we should present ourselves this summer. The weather will get hotter and clothing will be shed, but how much? How much is acceptable and at what point is this dishonoring to God?
In all of this chatter, the one thing that spoke to me most was that we must stay true to our faith. I believe that modesty is a choice we make between ourselves and the Lord. Bring it to prayer. Use wisdom. Consider the men around you and do your part to keep them free of temptation. And guys, you must also do your part by staying in prayer and keeping your eyes where they should be.
Certainly we should be open and mature enough to consider advice from wise Christians, but in the end ask yourself if your choices are pleasing to God and walk accordingly.
Those of us who do adhere to different convictions… I pray that we will be patient and kind to our sisters who are working out their salvation. Their choices are between them and the Lord. We can model behavior, but unless that behavior is clothed with kindness and grace it will do more harm than good.
Enjoy the summer ladies, and be true to your faith!
You are loved by an almighty God,
