All modesty threads are pretty much the same. There’s a lot of bickering and the discussion never goes anywhere. There are, however, a few people every thread who point out that modesty is not solely about clothing. It is also about how one acts. Unfortunately, this point never gets elaborated on. Let’s do that now and skip over all the clothing related unpleasantness. I envision this as being more positive than a standard modesty thread being it will be less about what certain people can’t do and who’s is responsible for whose sin, and more about how all of us (men and women alike) can improve ourselves. I know that it wouldn’t hurt me to work on a few of these things.
Here are a couple of way that I thought of how someone could be modest in his actions:
*]Put others first.
*]Give credit where credit is due
*]When others do nice things for you, say “thank you” and mean it
*]When you do something wrong, say “I’m sorry” and mean it
*]Give others the benefit of the doubt
*]Listen to people you disagree with and take the time to understand why they think what they think
Anybody have any more ideas?
Just to be clear . . .
This thread is not about clothing. Talk of clothing will be off topic. Being off topic is rude and being rude is immodest. Don’t talk about clothing.**
