Modesty Checklist

As a mother of daughters, I was particularly interested in this…

Modesty Checklist from Carolyn Mahaney (a very powerful speaker) and her three daughters. They are the wife and daughters of C.J. Mahaney of Sovereign Grace Ministries, Gaithersburg, MD. www.sovereigngraceministries.org.

I really like where it starts:

First, it’s time for a heart check…

“How does a woman discern the sometimes fine line between proper dress and dressing to be the center of attention? The answer starts in the intent of the heart. A woman should examine her motives and goals for the way she dresses. Is her intent to show the grace and beauty of womanhood? Is it to reveal a humble heart devoted to worshipping God? Or is it to call attention to herself and flaunt her beauty? Or worse, to attempt to lure men sexually? A woman who focuses on worshipping God will consider carefully how she is dressed, because her heart will dictate her wardrobe and appearance.” John MacArthur [emphasis added]

This is one of the wonderful things about the web. We are all connected even though we have never met and may never meet. I don’t personally know the Mahaney family, but I can still learn from them. I may not know you, but I can still pass along advice that I found helpful.

Those in the MODsquad might want to check this one out!
