Salt shares on Looking Sexy and Dressing to Kill
First of all, this is not my post, as in, I did not write it.
A sistafriend of mine sent it to me and it is just a pure 'Must Share' with you my dear Christian woman. As always my prayer is that you will read with wisdom and understanding.
I often hear Christian ladies who dress leaving little to the imagination 'upandan' (even to church) say things like 'God sees my heart, it's not about my dressing.' Hmmmm....I believe this is for you.
My prayer is that she who has ears, will hear, understand, reflect and then change.
Looking Sexy and Dressed to Kill
The following conversation took place between a grandmother and her grand-daughter .
*Grandma:* Mutoni, where are you going?
*Mutoni:* Grandma, I am going to Church.
*Grandma*: Really? Please come and sit down and let's talk for a minute before you go. I think we still have ample time before the Church Service begins? Don't we?
*Mutoni*: Yes, about an hour.
*Grandma*: The way you are dressed, in fact, you look very sexy.
*Mutoni*: (Smiling) Thank you very much ma.
*Grandma*: Hmmmm, Mutoni, I can see you love that compliment. Please tell me, do you need someone to have sex with you?
*Mutoni*: Ooh, noo! Grandma. Why this question?
*Grandma*: If you do not need someone to have sex with you, then, why do you dress *'sexy'*?
*Mutoni*: There's nothing to worry about, Grannie. I just want to....
*Grandma*: (cuts in)... dressed to kill, as usual! Mutoni, a Godly girl should never feel proud or swollen-headed when someone tells her that she *looks 'sexy'*. In fact, it's a very bad and insulting compliment.
The intention of dressing sexy is to arouse men, That's all. That's the reason why prostitutes dress this way. They dress this way because they want someone to have sex with them and pay them. They do everything possible to *'look sexy'* and attractive - not to just one person, but *to the entire men in town!*
They expose their breasts, they wear things that will reveal all their endowed curves -- and even private parts of their body -- JUST to *look sexy* and attractive to men, so that they will not rest until they have a carnal knowledge of them, for money. Please, Mutoni, are you also trying to look that way so that you will be attractive to men for sex?
Mutoni looked down, and was speechless.
*Grandma*: (continues) This is the reason why you are not getting a husband. Do you still wonder why suitable suitors rush to take you to bed.... then, after saying *'you are hot,'* they dump you? They feel that you cannot stay with *'one man'* alone. Do you now realise that I, your grandma, am not the one using witchcraft against you?
You are young, fit and attractive, although you are a Christian yet you always look so worldly. When you dress like this to Church, the probability of bringing even the pastor down is very high. But remember that *'woe betide the one by whom a righteous man is made to fall...'* I know you can remember this scripture very well. Well, my beloved grand-daughter, I am done. You can now go.
*Mutoni*: Thank you very much, Grandma. I have never looked at it like this before. From today onwards, I promise never to dress again *to look sexy*. I will rather dress to *look beautiful* and *glorify GOD* with my dressing. Thank you very much ma.
*Grandma*: You are welcome, my dear.
(Seeing that Mutoni started going towards her room, she said). But, are you not going to church anymore?
*Mutoni*: I will go Grannie. I just want to change my dress, first.
*Grandma*: May God bless you for doing that.
Please pass on to the women you care about.
Most *sexy looking girls* do not have someone to tell them the truth. Let us encourage them to read and react to it -- just as Mutoni did -- because *We are addressed the way we dress*.
Let us dress right to reflect the godliness in our lives.
There you have it. I bet this is not the first time you are reading something like this but I pray it re-enforces the way you dress already or makes you re-consider the way you dress right now.
You are priceless. Look at nature, most things of value - pearls, diamonds, gold, oil - are all deep at the bottom of the earth or sea. Man has to work hard, real hard to see, touch and have them.
You, my dear woman, are way more priceless than these things.
Why on earth will you put yourself on display so cheaply?
So easy to see, touch and have?
