Why is it that mommy makes sure you dress appropriately?
What do you thing dressing modestly mean? Explain
Definition of appropriate
suitable or fitting for a particular purpose, person, occasion, etc.: an appropriate example; an appropriate dress.
In matters of what is fitting to wear depending on where we are going everyone has a different opinion. So here is another area where James 1:5 is very needed. How do we know what is appropriate; we ask God for wisdom.
Scriptures that I use to help me and how
Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall.
If someone especially a brother at church says to me that what I am wearing is causing them to feel uncomfortable I don't wear it. I could have the attitude to feel like that us their problem not mine but with millions of choices of what to wear I rather find something else and stop doing the thing that makes that person uncomfortable.
How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves.
Song of Solomon 1:15
Our eyes will notice things. Is part of being human. You will notice a handsome boy and a boy will notice how beautiful you are.
Because our eyes notice things, when I get dress I look in the mirror and ask myself is what I am wearing something that makes me look beautiful inside and out? If I am not sure I ask dad and he is very good at telling me if something I am wearing is inappropriate for the occasion.
In learning what is appropriate to wear for a lady that is a Daughter of God you will make many mistakes. I just want to encourage you to be open to advice so you can be pleasing to God in the way you dress.
