As a women I think we think more about clothing than we really should. Years ago they had only 2 or 3 dresses to daily work and then the dress they called their church dress. Why do we need bigger closets than what we have? Maybe we wanted to keep several different size clothing, never know when we gain and lose. Or maybe we are try to get a certain look.

OH that brings to mind something. I always wanted an ankle bracelet but couldn't justify spending the money on something that my daughter would most likely say isn't age appropriate for me. Well a friend came back from Mexico last week and she bought all her girl friends ankle bracelets. I just love it. (See Colleen I was good and didn't spend money while John was away and God reward me with something I would like through you. Thank You.)

OK back to our clothing. The bible talks about whats a women to cloth herself in.
Proverbs 31:25 Strength and dignity are her clothing.
That is not what we think of when we are trying to decide to wear each day is it? When we stand in front of our closet we think "What is on today's agenda or where do I have to go". Well if we think about those things I'm sure they need our strength and dignity even more than material clothes.

I don't think the strength they are referring to is physical only. I believe it is also endurance and faithful. We need to be strong to handle what ever today brings and represent God in the way that is Glorifying to Him.

Dignity is our Godly behavior. The dictionary says it is the quality or state of being worthy of esteem or respect. So it is very important we live a God pleasing life daily.

So tomorrow when you are trying to figure out what to wear take time to cloth yourself with Strength and dignity.
