How, I wondered, could my everyday clothing serve my physical needs (protection from the perils of small children and animals), while also reminding me of the spiritual treasures hidden in this season of motherhood?
Because the Bible doesn't give explicit guidance about hemline length (etc), we must work these questions out in each new season of human history, as trends, fashions, and besetting sins evolve. That's well and good: but only if we are doing the same thing for all areas of life.
As promised in my last post, I've prepared a series of discussion questions for families and church groups on "redefining modesty."
Let’s imagine what it would mean for our literal clothing to symbolize our commitment to justice, mercy, and delight.
