TEXT 1 TIMOTHY 2:8-10
8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
Key Verse: 1 Peter 3:3; Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel.
From our text and key verse, we can learn the following of godly dressing.
I. Modest Apparel. The godly woman's dressing must be modest and appropriate, portraying her Christian faith and holiness. She must avoid both extremes, wretched or flamboyant appearance.
The reason God gives commandment to us is to instruct us on His
righteous ways, to promote righteousness, prevent sin, and protect the righteous from satanic influence. Braiding or plaiting of hair in these passages does not refer to the simple clean and decent way women weave their hair or use simple thread to tie strands of their hair in order to keep their hair natural, neat, long and feminine. It rather refers to the unnatural, ostentatious and fashionable hairdo practiced by the ungodly, according to the dictate of their god and master, Satan, which thing is designed to satisfy the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.
Thought for the day:
Nothing should be too much to give up for Christ.
Song for the day:
I am pressing on the upward way.
Bible reading for the day:
1 Chronicles 26-27; John 11:18-46
