Do you want to look sexy?
In other words, is having sex the first thought you want to come to someone’s mind when they look at you? Apparently, in our culture today, for many the answer is yes.
Sexy this. Sexy that. Just use the word, sexy, and the product will sell off of the shelves!
It is stating the obvious to say that our culture is absolutely obsessed with sex, lust, fornication, adultery, pornography and every other type of sexual vice. The unnatural speed of life today feeds superficiality in our relationships which feeds the culture’s sexual obsession, not to mention the gaping mouths of the corporations. We live with a lack of dignity and overabundance of desperation in attempting the impossible: getting our relational needs met sexually.
Statistics tell us that millions of men fight daily battles in this arena, especially with pornography. Milan Yurkovich, the model husband and regular co-host on New Life Live radio (2pm M-F on 970/1400AM) insists to the devastation of many women that we are naive to the fact that men are sexual beasts roaming around with clothes on.
If so many men already struggle with these vices, do we really want to partially expose our body parts to further feed the beasts within them? Are we that insecure with our femininity that we choose to trade our dignity? God help us.
The culture may have forgotten that sex is God’s great idea intended to be enjoyed within the context of marriage, but that doesn’t mean that we have forgotten it. In the same vein, let’s remember that what we wear on the outside is a reflection of what or who is living on the inside.
If we feel the overwhelming need to wear revealing clothing out in public, it might be time to dig deeper and locate the areas inside us that need work and healing. Once we have given ourselves the time and attention we need to deal with our issues, then we will naturally dress our bodies appropriately.
1 Thessalonians 4:3
For this is the will of God, that you should be consecrated (separated and set apart for pure and holy living): that you should abstain and shrink from all sexual vice,
