Modesty is for Men, too!

I said what I said, but let me explain why I said it. There are some who would argue, "the scriptures about modesty were directed towards the women in the church", yes...for a specific reason both Timothy and Peter instructed women to focus on godly character more than appearance (1 Peter 3:3-4), and being modest & appropriate instead of flamboyant & attention-seeking (1 Timothy 2:9).


Do men have to be modest


But this doesn't make men exempt from modest behavior. The definition of modest in Hebrew means humble, chaste, lowly, meek. Are men exempt from these virtues in the church? I don't believe so. It seems that most of the pressure and expectations are on the women in regards to appropriate dress and behavior. But if God calls us all to be pure, humble, lowly in mind, modest... then that means men have a responsibility as well.


Supporting Scripture:


"Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." Colossians 3:12


"But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!" Galatians 5:22-23


They don't need to be feeling themselves taking their shirts off, flexing their muscles either lol or wearing tight shorts to show off certain parts...or trying to flex their Rolex, cars, and grills but have rude & degrading character towards others. I'm led to believe that modesty goes both ways in the Kingdom of God.
