Modesty in the Purest Form
The Quality of........
|1 John 3:3|
Modesty and it's array of colors...... From your most inward emotions surrounding your mind, body, soul and spirit, to your outward appearance. All of which can capture the heart of many when conveyed in a virtuous way. It's a priceless gem of righteousness and innocence. Contagious!!! One that can be modeled after, respected and valued but not tamed by force. It begins with the heart and lead by example at a young age. Looking, discerning, and acknowledging the true meaning of what modesty truly is and how to embrace it. Gasping the beauty in which God made us, unique in every way. God has equipped us with desires that, when used rightly, bring fulfillment. He desires that your modest appearance motivate people to turn their hearts to him and to have a clear picture of who you truly are, not only on the outside but inside too.
The way a person carries themselves is important and should compliment their heart.
Being virtuous means having convictions that will be carried out and stand strong in the face of adversity, not wavering, or faulting and to have infectious reverence. Seeing our bodies as sacred . Imagine a princess, her beautiful hair, gown, even her whole attire, and that beauty beaming from her heart, and spirit, and form. Or a Knight, strong, steadfast and courageous also looked upon as a "Man of Modesty."
One who is interested in only being viewed as a gentle creature. One who is also known as a man of conviction, and who is created in the image of God. Dressed to impress in the most appropriate way.
Whether your male or female, gender doesn't matter. We all can practice modesty and set the standards for which we may be viewed. Our desire should be to outwardly present ourselves as respectable, driven, highly valued individuals who don't compare one another, but who sets the bar high.
