Adventures in the Lone Star State

Modesty

OK, so it’s been a lot more than one week since the last weekly Sunday posting. Nevertheless, it’s never too late to get back into it, right? Today’s video comes via the Chron’s religion section, which pulled it from the LDS Youth website. It speaks of a high-school girl that had difficulty finding modest dresses (i.e., non-sleeveless, low back, etc.) for prom. I remember when I was in high school that my friends had the same challenge.

Some people may wonder what the big fuss is about. “Live and let live,” people might say. That’s true. People are free to dress as the please. It is my belief that the way we dress expresses messages about who we are and it directly influences the way people treat us (for better or worse). People tend to treat modestly dresses people with more respect. A barometer that one may use is to think of the Savior and ask oneself, “Would I feel comfortable dressing this way in the Lord’s presence?”
