|My Vintage Looks|
How you present yourself says something, the question is, What do you want to say? Many people debate this topic over and over again but I am not here to debate. I am here to educate. If you can wear the right apparel for job interviews than why not to church? And you can do as the employer ask in the dress code but find it offensive by the church to be asked to dress a certain way. Come on Women of GOD!
Proverbs 31:25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
25Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; she rejoices over the future [the latter day or time to come, knowing that she and her family are in readiness for it]!
As a young woman in the church and ministry, I have learned how to present myself to the body of Christ in order to be received, because my purpose/message is bigger than my attire so why debate over it? So, You haven't been to church in a while and if your like me you want to stay fashionable.
Remember when your getting dressed for church service that you are not going to the mall, kicking it with your friends, or school. You are going to church. This is the Kingdom of God and we must remember that when we are getting dressed for church.
For example, if you put on an outfit and your first thought is "Wow, this makes me look sexy" Sexy should not be your agenda when attending church. I am sorry. God does not want to know how sexy you can dress in his temple.
Nor does God want to know how great your legs look in heels so, please bring the skirt length down. I'm sorry. That is not why we come to church. We should not aim to be a distraction in the church. That is not our goal. Yes, your beautiful! You must believe that even without dressing that way in church. We are Queens and Princesses in God's kingdom and we should look that way at all times. What I am saying is, you can look fashion trendy, holy, and acceptable to Jesus Christ all at the same time.
One thing my Pastor always tells us, God will bring the conviction and change so, you do not have to tell people, you just walk in it and God will do the rest. When your really after God own heart, you will do it, cause your sincere about God but those of you who know better but do whatever, Lets do better for the King. It is all to the King.
Take value in your attire. Dress as a Virtuous Woman. Walk as a Holy woman.
