What Does It Mean To Be Modest?

1 Timothy 2:9

9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

Modesty: is an attitude of humility and decency in dress, grooming, language, and behavior. If you are modest, you do not draw undue attention to yourself. Instead, you seek to “glorify God in your body, and in your spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:20

Adorn: make more beautiful or attractive.

Shamefacedness: showing modesty : bashful.

Sobriety: the physiological and psychological state of being “unaffected” (not taken over by or consumed with)by the presence of an intoxicant. (We all know we can get carried away and go overboard with our wigs & some with makeup too let’s keep it cute) Moderately, with self control. Costly array-You know if you're spending to much on those wigs and hair do's or clothes.

In proper context whatever you do.. Do it with humility and modesty. From your hair style to what you wear. If at anytime these things supersede your ability to love others, cause you to judge others you are no longer doing them in humility. If ppl know more about you by your hair or clothing than your heart & love you show one to another, you're no longer being modest.

That includes judging others for wearing make up or wigs or judging those who don’t. (Who are we to judge another man’s servant) Our beauty should not come from outward appearance but the posture of our heart. God sees the heart, and a beautiful woman has a “gentle and quiet spirit,” doesn’t matter if her hair is braided or not. It’s not that braided hair is sinful, but it is more important to develop godly character, it is more profitable to make sure we are clean on the inside than outer appearance. Let your..

“Good Deeds” out way your "Good Looks" 💋

Galatians 3:25-26

“But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.” (We are no longer under the law) “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” We have put on Christ.

Romans 14:22-23 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. (we are not condemned by our wigs)

23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

Sisters don’t wear that wig or make up if you are not wearing it in faith. To you it is sin.🙏🏽 Fr

To others continue to walk in the liberty you have in Christ don’t use it for an occasion to sin.

Lord teach me the simplicity of Jesus Christ remove all religious condemnation of man made rules from my life. Lead me to rightly divided truth in your word and help me to walk in the liberty you have given me.
