Calling All Girls!

"This is the norm." These 4 words from a video I watched yesterday (thanks to Brooke) on what guys think about modesty stuck out to me. It was in reference to how we girls dress provocatively without realizing the effect it has on guys. Should this be the norm? And whose liability is it that we amuse ourselves with a culture-polluted standard that is not only immoral, but also unbiblical and catapulting many others into sin? In 1 Timothy chapter 2, Paul teaches us that we as women should adorn ourselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control (verse 9). He says that we should not dress to show off our wealth or to be seductive. We should dress in a way that is that is proper for women who profess godliness (verse 10).

South Africa and the Sustaining Gospel

On July 18, I will be boarding a plane and leaving this country for the first time in my life. I will be crossing the big blue ocean heading for Johannesburg, South Africa. I have a whirlwind of emotions over it, but I am mostly excited for this opportunity and I cannot wait to see what all God is doing and is going to do in the lives of the people there we will serve.

...But why am I going?
