365 Days of Christ: Day 75
Modest is Hottest
It saddens me how some people don’t know how special they truly are. We all know Halloween is a time for people to bust out costumes and basically put on a facade of who they truly are. For many girls around the college age, this means dressing in, well, pretty much nothing.
I was walking up and down the streets and I would see girls in 4 or 5 inch heels wearing basically a bra and leggings with holes over their underpants in the freezing cold. There’s nothing else that screams desperation quite like that.
Do girls really need to exploit their bodies just so a drunken, low-life college boy would be willing to give them the attention for one night?
What ever happened to the “mystery” of the female body? Or the beauty and delicacy of it?
When girls are dressed like that, they’re setting themselves up for more heartbreak, more rejection, more dissatisfaction than if they were to modestly.
Any relationship that starts off with “dang that girl’s hot” is bound for failure.
Now the greatest part of all of this is that there’s no need to go on dressing up as desperation.
If you want attention, Christ is there and willing to give you his undivided attention.
If you want love, Christ DIED for you because of love.
If you want satisfaction, Christ conquered the world.
If you want comfort, God knows exactly what’s best for you.
If you want hope, you have eternal life waiting for you in heaven.
If you want honesty, Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life.
Seriously, if you think this “Jesus stuff” is not for you, then that means you need it the most.
This isn’t some ploy for the weak to use as a crutch, but this is a mission that involves constant struggles, trials, and temptations.
Just as this God knows how many grains of sand are on the beach,he knows you better than you know yourself. In God’s eyes, you are beautiful, worthy, lovely, and treasured. Don’t give yourself up for temporary satisfaction, but save yourself for everlasting joy.
