There are many choices in life, and many things can cause us to do things that we would not ordinarily do. The way I dress, and the way I talk are direct results of choices I made when I was nine years old. Before that my parents chose for me what I would wear, and how I would speak, and who I would spend my time with. Now, its my choice.
I choose to wear modest clothing because I am choosing self respect, and because I want to bring honor to God. Showing my skin to every man, woman, and child in the world will not engender self respect. It will not engender Godly honor. It will engender lust, and disrespect (towards myself and other women). Girls who bare their bodies are not honoring themselves, or God, nor are they aiding the plight of women around the world. Yeah, it may be uplifting for a while, but soon it becomes boring.
I choose to honor God. I choose self respect. I choose respecting others above myself.
I can wear pants and shorts and bikinis. There is no one standing behind me banging me over the head with a rule book five inches thick that is making me dress/act the way I do. I can do those things. I can out swear a sailor, or sleep with every guy who takes me out to dinner if I want to. But I choose something different. I choose to wear modest clothing. I choose not to bare my body to everyone. I choose not to wear pants. I choose not to swear. I choose not to sleep around. I choose to walk the path of God, and seek out the things that please Him because I am His child.
God loves us no matter what we do. If we love Him in return we will do the things that please Him.
Modesty is a choice. Modesty is an attitude. Modesty is a way of life. Modesty without God is empty.
