Deuteronomy 22:5 "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." This is among the most debated verses of Scripture in our churches. People pick it apart. I'm working on a article for my blog
on the issue of modesty and what God clearly tells us about it. It is something the Lord has impressed on my heart to write about because I see how needful it is.
I understand what God clearly says in this verse; it's no problem for me, and I believe I have some good, helpful points to bring out. However, I feel I need the counsel of ladies, especially those in the ministry, who have helped lead other ladies to a clear understanding of this truth. How did you do it? How did you help them to see that it is NOT an issue of "legalism"? What were most effective points you used that helped them to understand?
I read something in a book this morning that really encouraged my heart. The fact that God has given us laws in His Word shows that He cares
about us, that He is interested in every single detail
of our personal lives. That He should condescend to tell us just
how to live and walk so as to please Him is one of the greatest proofs of His love for us. He doesn't leave us to guesswork! "Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them." (Ps. 119:165)
Thank you so much, ladies. =)
