Disgusted…that’s the first word that comes to mind when I flash back to last night’s Superbowl half time show. I don’t know about you but I wanted to cover over man in the room’s eyes when they were showing the previews.
I just don’t get it! Ladies, do we not think more of ourselves than to walk around half naked? And, yes, I’m referring to more than Beyonce last night.
As a wife, I’m constantly frustrated, not only by the scantily clad women on tv advertising and billboards but by the way women dress when they’re out and about every day. I can just imagine how hard it is being a man and attempting to keep thoughts pure without all the other distractions looming around.
Don’t get me wrong…I’m not asking us to walk around in turtlenecks and skirts down to our ankles. I do, however, believe that there is a happy medium. And don’t give me the, “I can’t find anything that’s cute and modest” speech because I’ve heard it a thousand times. Modest clothes may be a bit harder to find but they’re out there.
I Corinthians 6:19 reminds us that our, “body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you.” Are you dressing like your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit? If Jesus were standing beside you each morning when you get dressed or when you’re dolling yourself up for a date (and He is), how would He feel about your outfit of choice?
I want to encourage you to show yourself some respect and cover it up! If you have to dress a certain way to attract men then I can promise you that those are not the men that you want…and they’re not going to give you the respect you deserve. You are God’s precious child and deserve to be treated as such!
I’m stepping down off of my soap box now but I’d love to know your thoughts on last night’s half time show and/or the way that women dress these days.
