Modesty. We’ve talked a lot about the need for our daughters to be modest. But what about our young men? Yeah, modesty is a problem with guys too. My biggest beef? Pants not covering backsides. Mom and Dad, you not only need to set an example of how to dress—but enforce it. Heart change is really the only thing that’s going to get through a young man’s head that dressing modestly is something God’s going to bless. So point them to the most powerful tool: Scripture. Micah 6:8 says, “He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” (NKJV). Modesty will flow from that.
