Discretion is the best accessory and Modesty is always suitable.
Discretion is a loyalty you owe to yourself first and also to others. Indiscretion can be showing too much and sharing too much. Who hasn’t been the target of "Mouth Runneth Over" ...Someone just Sharing information indiscriminately. Beware, if they can do it to others they can do it to you. We also don't want to be exposed to a spirit of strife or become entangled, sometimes the person is not even aware they they need spiritual deliverance. Discretion is the best accessory because it always keeps you covered.
Modesty is always suitable. Unguarded, yet honest people are susceptible to “unwittingly, sharing too much", but, they can learn to hold back, to NOT offer what ISN’T required. Where as busybodies, seem to know just what to gather or use, at the worst moment. With & without realizing, they create a stir about something that isn't an issue, manipulatively distracting. Modesty should also be applied to how we go on about ourselves, what we share. Modesty should be used in how we critique others. Modesty is always in good taste when applied to a person’s wardrobe as well as their vernacular! What can come out of your mouth can defile you more than anything you could ever place into it! ...guard those lips!
Now, if the Holy Spirit has pinched your consciences a little, I’m glad, I’m not alone, LOL....We all, are no better, no worse. Having to be mindful of what others receive & perceive from us, it's an exchange of give and take. It's alright to care or be concerned, to a degree. Once you define ‘others’ & once you define ‘think’! LOL I’m most concerned with what, " I think others think!" < which is usually vastly different from what they actually think> so I've abandoned that practice long ago & live my life in accord with standards defined by Gods word. Even if I never measure up, I have a perfect blue-print which I will be rectified with, in the end. God’s word is Powerful, Eternal & His grace is sufficient enough to include me. \o/ that's all I need focus on, all the time!!!
We need the LORD to mend up our spiritual garments, to reinforce those seems. This is accomplished with careful attention, true desire & simple surrender. Christians!; My Sisters & Brothers...from time to time, you might encounter someone trying to infringe upon these areas I’ve illustrated. I tell you the word of God instructs us to Be meek, NOT WEAK . When you have Gods opinion valued above man, it’s turning the mirror on the monster! Mistake a true Child of God for weak and you'll be sorely mistaken. Live respectfully with modesty & temperance BUT stand up for what’s right. In all things exemplify respect & in there so doing, you command it. We need Godly discernment & a fair amount of sensibility.
So the message in a nutshell...Select the garments of righteousness. Like you reach for sunglasses, sunblock & your gear. We can avoid getting burned by defending our spirit & slathering on a healthy dose of virtue. Watch what you expose yourself to & watch what is revealed. Be ready to yield your spirit to His promptings; That might be a directive to “stand & defend”, or it might be a directive to be "silent & still!" You'll know it, cause ‘silent and still’ is the exception but NOT the rule. Gods kingdom doesn't need any doormats, last we heard."
Jonah 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
Proverbs 11:22 Like a gold ring in a pigs snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.
