A Weekly Devotional

Girls Gone Mild
by Steve Higginbotham
June 13, 2008
Never has there
been a time in the history of our society in which sexuality has been
exploited and shamelessly flaunted as it is today. The constant exposure to
immodesty and sexuality has desensitized our culture. No longer does one
blush, feel embarrassed or ashamed by their clothing or lack thereof. Do
you remember a time when you would have been embarrassed for your
“underwear” to be seen? Who would have thought that underwear would become
“outerwear” and deliberately displayed without blushing or embarrassment?
Friends, there may be nothing we can do about the way the world acts and dresses. But within our society, one shouldn’t have to look long to find a group of people who are not conformed to culture (Romans 12:2), but who are living counter-culture lives, and who are more interested in authentic discipleship than acceptance and popularity. Would a person observing the way you dress or the way your children dress come to the conclusion that you are among the number of those “gone wild” or those “gone mild?” Give it some thought.
