I could say,religion raised me. Growing up, it was unheard of to go to church in trousers. I was a tomboy and i loved jeans but Sundays while i got ready for Sunday school, you would hear my mothers voice echoing,’Trousers do not go to church or short skirts Sharo!’ And that way the girl in me was discovered. I argued that the bible says ‘come as you are’ but maybe till today, my thought of it was/is a complete version of the scriptures. “come as you are you who are week and heavy laden” NOT those naked because you are being fashion forward. Before i got saved, each time i visited a pentecostal church i was depressed by the dress code and sometimes i felt like walking up to someone and say “those are leggings not jeans! or those are tights not trousers or that skirt is too club like to be seen in this realm.”.
Maybe my mother knew the meaning of proverbs 22:6 or some children are just big headed so they depart from these ways but sincerely,how do you feel comfortable in thigh high damaged jeans and a crop top inside church. Okay, its trendy but how do you leave your room/house and go to church dressed to destruct? I could promise you that it’s the devil building a destruction tower in you and you need to learn to dress for and to the occasion because the last i checked, fashion was about that besides being trendy.
Last Sunday as i walked out of church after the service, a lady walking infront of me was wearing body stockings (you could call them tights) and a netted shrug dress-top. i could swear she had a problem with her head. Do your mothers dress like that to church? for heaven-sake its a church service NOT blankets and wines. Kindly be modest, respect the place or do you forget, Your body is the temple of the lord and be mindful how yo treat and use it. Even christian men are human, LEAD them not to temption!
They say the church isn’t a place for saints only, I am not saying do not come to church because you have no decent dressing all am saying be mindful of the image you wear. If it does not give glory to his name, kindly invest in one decent outfit.
Well, i will share a few pictures and please pick a leaf! (ooh i was dying to blog about this!)
