I have another modesty question. ducks from all the tomatoes that are thrown at head
Do we have to make an effort to dress modestly at home?
When I go out, I am always careful to wear very appropriate things. I don’t wear tight pants, short skirts or shorts, low cut or revealing shirts, or anything of that nature. However, one a normal day where I don’t go anywhere (I’m homeschooled), or if I am just chilling around my house, I might wear something a bit less modest. I am not referring to anything terrible scandalous, but something like cotton shorts and a tank-top that is that is the slightest bit see-through. I am wearing these clothes because they’re comfy, easy to relax in, and I don’t mind getting them dirty. If I am home for the day, there is no way I will be bumping into anyone beside my siblings and parents, so it isn’t as if anyone outside my immediate family will be seeing me. (And when I say staying home, I literally mean not leaving my house, or, at the most, sitting on my back porch (where my one neighbor can’t even see me).) If I were to be going out, I’d change out of the clothes.
This assumes that the reason to dress modestly in public is to present yourself in a humble, well-covered way, and not to show too much skin. This ideology (which I admit I sometimes am guilty of) is not necessarily in an effort to show honor God, but just to present yourself as modest. I strive for both case scenerious in public. I never thought it mattered what I wore at home (obviously within reason) until now. What do you think?
Thank you for your time!
