Did you know that you can say and do the right things, look the part and play the role, but all the while be an imposter?
We tend to think of the hypocrite as anyone but ourselves. However, I ask the question do we ever take a look within, reassess our hearts and attitudes, and possibly see the hypocrite in the mirror before us?
Modesty is not just a style of dress. Modesty comprises a virtue affecting our appearance, our speech, our minds, and our hearts. By being modest in only one or two of these areas but negating the others is in its essence falsehood.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” Deuteronomy 6:5
Would it not appear to be highly inconsistent if a woman dressed modestly but then her speech was crude? If she were to strive for purity in every outward area but complained regularly about the cruelty of such a restriction, would it not seem odd that her heart was not behind her strict standards? If a woman dressed and spoke with the utmost piety, but then judged others harshly for not attaining to her spiritual maturity, would this not only turn those people away from her and the God she claims to follow?
We ought to be very careful and purposeful as women the messages we are sending and the example we are leaving.
