Many worldly people give importance for outward appearance but inward they are cunning filled with hypocrisy. Some people Dress properly but their heart is evil and sinful. God is not so interested in what a person looks like outside but he looks what is their inside our heart but that doesnít apply for justification of inappropriate clothes. Hos 4:6 says My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Many Such people who defends justification of inappropriate clothing obviously ignore some of the passages such as Matthew 5:16 where our Lord admonishes us, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Which is in Heaven."
Proverbs 7:10 shows us that there is such a thing as the "attire of an harlot."
I Timothy 2:9 the Apostle Paul admonishes Timothy to exhort women to wear "modest apparel.In like manner also, that woman adorns themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety: not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."
We must not only profess our faith and love for Christ but also need to practice such faith and love in our daily lives.
Just Our immodest clothing reveals our immoral attitude, wicked and hypocritical heart (Proverbs 7:10), so our decent, pure, appropriate modest clothing reveals our heart lying in a gentle and quiet spirit for this is precious to the sight of God (1 Peter 3:3-4).God looks for a heart who seeks God, who fears God, who will obey and follow his commandments by respecting him with trustful and submissive heart who truly devotes and serves God with all our heart, soul and mind. Jesus Christ is our role model and we need to follow the simplicity of lifestyle of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ doesnít love outward glittering ornaments and expensive clothing with huge makeupís rather he loves to come before him with our decent soberly modest cloth, in purity, holiness, and in godly attire.
