What Makes A Beautiful Woman, Part 5

...likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire...1 Timothy 2:9

Do I avoid extreme or excessive fashions (hair, clothing, jewelry, make-up) that could call attention to myself or cause people to be distracted from focusing on the Lord?

Do I avoid extravagant jewelry or clothing that could flaunt my wealth or cause others to be envious?

Do my wardrobe and outward appearance portray a spirit of moderation, sobriety, purity , and reverence?

  1. I never considered what you said about wearing extravagant jewels and clothing which make others envious. I don't have anything large and extravagant, but I do have nice pieces of jewelry that my husband has bought for me. It's funny, but last year he bought some crystal jewelry for me, but I find it slightly large. I don't think I have worn it yet. On an even funnier note, when he proposed he had 1/2 karat diamond ring. When we got married, I had a 1/4 karat. I think I shocked the poor guy!
