Modesty vs. Sexy

Now, there’s been some backlash and criticisms about the sexy apparels worn by Megan Good at the BET awards and Chante Moore at her church. People are talking about how inappropriate it was for them to dress in such a manner being Christians and one of the church nonetheless. But then you have people that go to the extreme that say women are not suppose to wear skirts at the knee, cut their hair, reveal their shoulders, and not put makeup on. These are both extremes and inappropriate for any Christian to partake of. Dressing sexy doesn’t help those overcoming lust and keeping their minds on Jesus when your breasts are out for the world to see. Megan Good got her feelings hurt because of folks being judgemental on her cleavage plunging down to her navel being a minister’s wife. How many people do you think would be focused on God seeing someone like that walk in the church to do prayer? Not really because it would be distracting or tempting to others. The Holy Ghost would have told her to wear something that was more modest  but not a MuMu either. God wants us to celebrate how He created us but to a certain extent where we don’t cause other people to stumble or lose focus on God  because you want to bring SexyBack. The last thing a person trying to overcome a lustful spirit is to see someone like Megan Good in that blue dress walking by. That’s not helpful. Let’s look at Chante Moore’s dress code for church who was singing a gospel song but my eyes kept seeing that she was lacking some material in the front of the dress. She was singing so beautifully but her cleavage was distracting and I know some people in the audience was thinking the same thing including the unsaved ones. We have to be careful not to bring the world’s way of dressing into the Kingdom of God otherwise that’s causes confusion for those who want to be saved and live sold out to God. Now, let’s look at the other extreme that’s equally inappropriate as well. I call her, The No-Make-Up Diva. 

You have people that think that not looking sexy means you wear long skirts, long hair, no makeup and no jewelry whatsoever. Some folks think its a sin to put lotion on ashy feet, put chapstick on your crusty lips or wear a skirt to the knee. Oh, please don’t have your arms out or wearing cosmetic jewelry, you must a evil spirit residing in you. This is a form of bondage because it makes a woman think that being and dressing beautiful is a sin but that is in man’s eyes not God’s. Being a girl can be fun and liberating when you embellished yourself with beautiful things that shows how fearfully and wonderfully God made you. The true beauty should resonate from the Spirit of God that is dwells in you that illuminates on the outside for people to celebrate. It’s okay to look and feel pretty but be modest about it meaning don’t show the world all that God gave you. Do everything even in dress in moderation, style and substance. A virtuous woman of God will dress in decency and in order showing good taste and not on the borderline of dressing inappropriately.
