Modesty and Decency is observing the proprieties of: dress, speech, and behavior. I like this quote by Susan Gale – “Common sense, common courtesy and common decency really do have a lot in common. They all disappeared around the same time.”
I have come in contact with a lot of people lately who are rude, crude, and immodest. Makes me think of this scripture in the Bible. I Corinthians 14:40 – “Let all things be done decently (properly) and in order.”
I ran across this old picture of two little girls on the beach, back in the early 1900s. This shows how modestly people dressed their children a century ago. This might not be such a bad way to dress today, it would at least keep children from getting so badly sunburned.
I totally agree with the following quotes: “Just because our culture normalizes what’s wrong, doesn’t make it right.” – – – “Loquacity (being very talkative) storms the ear, but modesty takes the heart.” Robert South
I had a lady send me a text the other day. It was a vulgar joke. This lady professes to be raised with morals. I text these words back to her. “That is nasty.” She text back: “My friend and I liked this joke, we are just two old biddies.” I did not text back, this offended me very much, I detest vulgar jokes. I guess, I would classify this as disrespect for others, because she knows I attend church regularly.
