C. J. Mahaney on Modesty

“Modesty means propriety. It means avoiding clothes and adornment that are extravagant or sexually enticing. Modesty is humility expressed in dress. It’s a desire to serve others, particularly men, by not promoting or provoking sensuality.”

“Make this your aim: that there be no contradiction between your Gospel message and the clothes you wear. May your modest dress be a humble witness to the One who gave himself as a ransom for all.”

“We have a Gospel mission: not only to preach Christ but to live in a way consistent with our profession of faith. As women, you can detract from the Gospel mission by dressing immodestly, or you can enhance the Gospel mission by dressing in a way that reflects the transforming power of the Gospel at work in you. The humble woman, the modest woman, is concerned about the lost. And her dress reflects that concern.”
