Today’s fashions are frustrating. What’s the answer?

Posted on 12/21/2017 by Greg Yoder

I empathize with you. Some of our biggest disagreements with our kids came over clothing. My personal frustration—leggings. Now, I know that women wear them modestly with long sweaters, and that’s okay. But many DON’T. And for guys, it can be a stumbling block. But I realize fashion is always a personal choice. And I hope that our choices will be biblically based. Dawn Wilson writes for and encourages us to ask1:

• “Does my clothing illustrate my surrender to the Lord”?

• “Have I focused on my heart, or only my wardrobe?”

• Are my clothes “consistent with transformed thinking”?

• “Am I practicing modesty”?

• “Do I dress with dignity and strength?”

“Yes” to these questions can help avoid conflict.

My daughter feels weird when she puts on a dress and the other girls have a shirt and pants on
