Disrespecting Your Body

September 15, 2011 Leave a comment

As I walk through stores, or any public place for that matter ( especially at the beach ), I’m surprised to see how many women disrespect their bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19 says “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? “

When I say disrespecting their bodies I mean the following things: 1. Dressing inappropiately, ex. skimpy bikinis, etc. 2. Looking like tramps, etc.

We need to respect our bodies, because they are temples of the Holy Spirit.

I’m not going to go into my usual lecture on modesty, instead I’m going to reflect on my own experiences around different men and women. ( Names will not be included for sake of privacy and respect. )

Once a girl ( teenage age I believe ) was leaving a convience store, dressed in shorts ( let me emphisize the word shorts ) and possibly a tank top. At the same time, a pastor was walking up to the store at the same time. Just before he opened the door, he looked to the left and looked the girl a few seconds before entering.

Men are wired a certain way. There’s nothing wrong with a guy admiring you because they think you’re pretty……how do I explain this…..but like I said, they’re wired a certain way. I’m still unsure how to explain it.

Another experience: I was in a grocery store waiting for my mom to finish paying for the groceries when I saw a woman standing a few feet away from me. I don’t remember her top but I remember her wearing tights. It shocked me. The bottom half of her figure was shown, with nothing left to the imagination. Thankfully, I never was subjected to having see the front-side of her body. ( no offense )
