This is another post to go along with the modesty posts that I’ve been sharing. This is very interesting and as a Christian woman, a wife and mother, I have never worn a bikini, but have had to confront the cultures impact and pull in the lives of my daughters. This made me think even harder and more seriously than I already did, and I pray it causes all of us to take a second look at the impact our actions have on others in the Body of Christ. As a family, we made the difficult decision a few years ago to stop attending Summer pool parties at the home of a dear friend, because of the inappropriate way the girls were dressed, and the close physical contact taking place between boys and girls who barely had anything on. Our kids did not initially understand why we weren’t going back, but my husband and I did. We both understood the trap that the enemy was laying for them later in life, by the repeated exposure to 4/5 naked girls all in the name of harmless fellowship. I never understood why parents would NOT let their daughters out of the house in their underwear, but saw nothing wrong with them romping with the opposite sex in what amounted to (at times) less than underwear. If this is an area where you follow the voice of the culture more than the leading of the Holy Spirit, I encourage you to step back and pray. Stand in front of the mirror in your bathing suit/bikini and simply ask the Lord what He thinks…and wait for Him to speak to your heart. If your desire is to truly please Him, He will answer you…will you obey Him?
