So Saturday night Ayesha Curry wrote this statement on Twitter.
“Just looking at the latest trends. I’ll take classy over trendy any day of the week”
Just looking at the latest fashion trends. I’ll take classy over trendy any day of the week. #saturdaynightinsight
I have not always been a Christian but…. I always had standards. I was never into trendy items myself. While others were wearing belly shirts and tight jeans in high school I chose to wear slacks, and overalls. I never liked exposing any skin because I felt that a guy would only want one thing when approaching me and truth be told that is exactly what happens. We all know that men are visual so them seeing breasts and butt will automatically send then into a different outlook of who you are to them. When I did try to dress provocative, sexy however you want to call it, I kept in mind that no man was going to approach me on a serious note and that in it self was also the reason why I decided not to dress that way.
Now fast forward to my life as a Christian and I got caught in the whole you shouldn’t wear pants and jewelry era and it nearly destroyed me. Why? because again the clothes you wear does not depict your character. I had to leave the place that put me in such bondage and come to find God on my own and his word tells me whatever you do it as unto the Lord.
My mindset has shifted to ask is what I am doing pleasing in your sight? So if wearing a miniskirt and I have no bad intentions with this low-cut blouse I am not seeking attention to my body in a way that is not pleasing to God than by all means but if we are honest with ourselves that is not really the case is it? As women when we dress this way we are seeking attention. We want to be noticed or we want to entice a man to talk to us.If your intention in doing something is not with good intention or about God then you are automatically doing it for the wrong reasons. I am in total agreement with Mrs. Curry statement but I am extremely concerned about the slack she got for speaking this way. There is nothing wrong with her statement I am concerned with the women who are attacking her and other women for believing in modesty. In a blaze article addressing modesty
I’ll wear what I want because I like it.
You can’t tell me how to dress, that’s oppressive.
If a man is lustful, that’s his problem.
It’s the man’s job not to look.
If you are guilty of saying these things its time for a reality check. These statement are ones that do not glorify God in any manner or form. These statements are saying regardless of what it’s all about me and worshipping God is not about you it’s about honoring HIM.
As women of God we have to honor God with not just our lips but our bodies we are the temple of God and that doesn’t mean dress modest and have a lying, covetous spirit but as said before your whole body has to be pure not just your eye but your arms your legs and your mind.
This all goes back to one thing
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

How do you dress? Do you have standards as to how far you will dress?
