I Timothy 2: 9-10 ” I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.”

These verses tell us that we shouldn’t be calling attention to ourselves by our outward appearances…but rather the emphasis should be on holy living and good works.  This was really brought to life years ago at a Church we were attending.  The members dressed very nicely…to the point it was almost a style show every Sunday.  But one Sunday the Pastor stood at the pulpit and rebuked the entire congregation with this story.  A family had visited the Church for the first time and had enjoyed the service but they felt they couldn’t come back…because they didn’t have nice clothes to wear  and felt embarrassed.  Our Pastor admonished us all and then wondered out loud just how many other visitors might have felt the same way.  He then requested that we seriously reconsider how we dressed for Church.
