1. 1 Timothy 2:9 talks about how women and girls should look when they go out. Why is this important? What can the way you dress say about the kind of person you are?
2. Proverbs 31:10-31 describes a noble woman. She brings honor to her husband, takes care of her family, and helps the poor. Notice that she dresses nicely, in fine linen and purple. But she doesn’t do it to attract attention to herself. She’s more concerned about others than she is about herself. She isn’t worried about how others think she looks—in fact, she laughs when she thinks of the future when she’ll be old. She knows that trusting God gives her strength and honor, and that’s all she needs to be content. As you listen to this episode, think about the reasons why you act and dress the way you do.
“I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes”
A: When you dress older, people expect you to be older—and that may cause you problems you’re not ready for.
In this episode, Lucille learns that looking rebellious can make other people think she is rebellious, and can even make her act more rebellious!
If you saw a firefighter or a police officer walking down the street, you could tell what they were by the clothes they had on. Nurses have their own styles of clothes, and so do ranchers and football players. You might not realize it, but people are looking at the way you dress and trying to figure out what you are. The apostle Paul reminded us that after we’ve trusted Christ, our bodies are no longer ours to do with what we want. The Holy Spirit lives inside us, and we should behave in a way that shows we’re his (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Most of the verses we’ve looked at refer to the way girls and women dress, but dressing appropriately is just as important for boys and men. We are witnesses for Jesus Christ in all we do. We should dress the part.

Look in the mirror right now. Try to see yourself through other people’s eyes. What do you see? Do you look like a kid who loves the Lord and wants others to know him too? Or will others see you as a rebel who is out to make trouble? Do you look the way you want others to think about you? How would you change the way you look if you were going out to tell others about what God means to you?
