Modesty – MBFLP 162

One contentious question in the conservative wing of the church is modesty. What defines modesty? How should a modest spirit be expressed? The difficulty is that Scripture gives guidelines but no hemlines – and actually, appropriate dress and behavior will differ from one context or one culture to another. What’s more, it isn’t a women’s issue – men have their issues, too. This episode we have a lively discussion involving blue jeans, ladies in the tropics, swimming in long skirts, and the Old Order Amish. It’s all about making Biblical family life practical.

In this episode, I’ll talk about how to train your children to be independent and responsible, how to take initiative, and how to serve others cheerfully.
