Modesty is a topic greatly discussed in the Christian Community and is often communicated as a problem that needs to be addressed by girls. Today while talking with a close friend, we both discussed the issue of modesty among our generation of students. We discussed how modesty is an important topic for young girls, but also that it is just as important for young men.
My friend just discussed in a class on campus the idea of modesty, the views discussed in her class viewed men and women as complete equals and therefore men and women should be able to control themselves. However, according to the Bible, men are given the role of leading the family, to love their wives and to give themselves up for her. Women are to submit and honor their husbands. (Ephesians 5:22-33) With this in mind, Christian singles should be living a life now that will make them ready for marriage.
These two articles present views about modesty from other youth ministry blogs. These blogs call guys and girls to be modest and to honor God in how they dress and present themselves. Check them out to see what you think!
