A Maiden... dresses respectfully

As we are looking through the character trait of respect, one way I really believe we are called to cultivate this is to dress in a way that is respectful - that is, to dress modestly. Why should we do this? Well, I think that there are five groups of people we can show love, honour and respect to by dressing modestly: the Lord, ourselves, the headship we're under/will be under (i.e. father and future husband in this case, as we are maidens), other men, and other women. Over on my blog I have been doing a five-part series on this, taking each group of people for each post and looking at why and how we show respect to these people by dressing modestly. I hope you will check it out! And let us all dress in a way that is respectful to God, our own bodies, and people around us :).

Emily,
Amen! Thankyou for that post! A very excellent point!We respect our family, by dressing modestly. But it is also not just our clothest that make us modest, it is our manners, and the way we come across. They say that clothes make the man, but it is also your manners make you too!
