More Questions on Modesty

Series on Modesty at Faith's Firm Foundation

In our continuing Series on Modesty, I have been thinking about some more questions on modesty–what do you think?

I want you to know that I think these questions are valid, and things we all need to think about, if we aim to be chaste and modest.  Somehow, they sound a little weird upon re-reading them an hour or so after I posted them. I felt a little like I needed to explain.  Have you ever thought about your answers to these questions, and do you have answers, and reasons for the answers you have, which are Biblical.  I hope you won’t think I’m too weird for asking these questions in this setting. Just want us all to think.

Questions on Modesty:

Are pajama pants or is a nightgown more modest?

Do you need to wear a robe around the house when wearing either pajama pants or a nightgown?

Is it ok to be seen in your own home by your family in your pajamas (with or without a robe)?  By people outside of  your family?

Can a guy be immodest by walking around with his shirt off?

Is it ok for a guy’s underwear to show?

Is it ok for sisters and brothers to see each other in their underwear?

Do you need to keep your bedroom door shut at night?

Which of these things are ok for a girl or woman to show:

  • Bare thighs
  • Bare chest (just to clarify: I didn’t say breast, ok?)
  • Bare midriff
  • Bare shoulders
  • Bare arms
  • Bare back
  • Cleavage
  • Bra strap or bra
  • Slip or camisole

In the above question, does it make any difference to your answer whether it’s a family member or someone outside of your family that’s around?

Is your wedding day, or other special occasion, a time when you would answer the above questions differently?

Do the following have anything at all to do with modesty?

  • Wearing stockings/nylons/tights, etc., or wearing no socks
  • Wearing shoes or not, and what shoes you wear
  • Your hairstyle, makeup or the presence, or lack, of nail polish

It was a busy weekend for our family! After saying goodbye to our son for two weeks, on Saturday we attended a lovely and modest wedding on Saturday.  Then our Home Church met at our house on Sunday with a potluck following!

It was a beautiful day on Saturday for the wedding.  There seemed to be between 350 and 500 people in attendance.  There was a meal served of a delicious pasta salad and a green salad, with a wonderful crusty bread and two kinds of ice cream for dessert! The bride’s family found someone who makes a homemade ice cream which is absolutely fantastic! It was strawberry–yum!  The only time we had to stand in line, but well worth the wait!  I heard that 350 were served, however I counted seating for well over 600!  Just a small, intimate party:)

Tables were arranged under tents, with additional tables surrounding that area. It was very comfortable, and everything went really smoothly and quickly!

Here are some photos from Eric and Anna’s wedding that I thought you’d enjoy.
