What is Modesty?

 

MODESTY is a shame-faced feeling (humility) of reverence for God and Christ that keeps you from feeling bold and brazen with your body and clothing (1 Timothy 2:9).

1 Corinthians 12:18-24 teaches us how Jesus feels about his body (Christians) and the comparison with our own physical bodies is plain. Jesus plainly tells us that on certain parts, God bestows more abundant honor (respect) by covering it … because it is too precious to be seen by the public. Any Christian must have God’s attitude about your body it is not yours to do what you want or feel with it it belongs to the Lord for his service. Have respect and be ashamed to willfully reveal it’s comely parts to the whole wide world. Do not dishonor your body — this is called “modesty” aka humility.
