It’s that time of year again. The fashion magazines are touting the newest and hottest clothing trends for spring and summer. And because fashion is so fickle, a woman is sure to find that what was popular last season, must not see the light of day this season. But more than just the latest style, spring and summer (in particular) usher in a vast array of immodest and indecent clothing. Thus the racks and shelves at the nearest mall are crammed full of body-revealing attire.
So, what’s a Christian woman to do?
We must consult God’s Word rather than the fashion magazines. We must take God with us when we go shopping. And what’s interesting--and freeing, I might add--is that God’s clothing style for women doesn’t change from season to season. He presents his fashion standard to us in 1 Timothy 2:9-10:
Women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.
Over the next few days we will be talking about this verse and what it means for our 2006 spring and summer wardrobes. We hope you will join us for this discussion: Fashion and Following the Savior.
