That covers a lot of ground! It has to do with our actions and who we are at our core as well as with our appearance. I'm sure we've all seen women in very modest apparel with attitudes that were flirtatious, complaining or characterized by some other undesirable character trait.decorous: characterized by dignified propriety in conduct, manners, appearance, character, etc.
There is one other time in the King James Version where a word is used that has the same meaning as modest. It is in reference to the behavior of bishops and mentions nothing about their attire. So, be encouraged, the men aren't off the hook on this modesty thing!
My desire in encouraging us to live a life of modesty is to make sure every action is lined up with God's perfect will for us whether it be the action of dressing ourselves or of how we act.
Be encouraged today as you live a modest life before our Saviour!
