One of the questions I received on my survey was about why I'm okay with shorts (as I'm wearing here) but not short skirts? This is a really good question! I hadn't realized I've never covered this subject on my blog before.
First of all, I'm not being wishy washy or anything like that, but modesty truly is different from person to person. Show me a verse in the Bible where it specifically says "thou shalt not wear ____." And we'll talk. I don't believe pants or shorts are against God's desire for us to wear modest apparel-within reason. We all know there are super tight pants and barely there shorts; we're not talking about those.
To be honest, I wouldn't feel comfortable in shorts any shorter than these. The reason I'm okay wearing shorts at this length (versus a skirt this length) is for a simple reason: shorts stay in place, skirts don't! Shorts don't really show more at this length when you bend over or the wind blows. Skirts, however, show much more when you bend over and a lot more when the wind blows.
Am I saying you should wear shorts? That answer is entirely up to you and God. I can't tell you one way or another-this is just my feelings about shorts!
Now it's your turn: what are your thoughts on shorts?
