Modest Dress

“But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:28)  This verse is obviously directed at men.  But why do some Christian females dress in a way that tempts a man to go there, in his mind, with her?  The way a female dresses speaks louder than anything she professes verbally.  Overly revealing dress is an invitation to lascivious thoughts.  A female who fails to present herself in a way befitting one who professes to obey God (1 Timothy 2:9-10) is not serving herself, her Lord, or the men she encounters.  Nor is she setting a proper example for family, friends, and fellow church members.  When you dress in the morning, would you make the same clothing choice if you knew later, that very day, you would meet Jesus Himself?  If the answer is no, change your clothes!  A female who dresses enticingly is not only causing others to sin, but is guilty of sin herself.
