  1. Our preached shared something in a sermon a while back that really gave me a ‘picture’ of how caring our Father is. Since Adam and Eve used these horribly scratchy and prickly leaves for their first outfit, the Lord in His mercy and kindness gave them some clothes that were softer and more comfortable on their skin. Thought that was worth a share.

    ‘Decent’ post~it does get to be more challenging for us to find appropriate clothing…but where there’s a will there’s way. The Lord will bless it if we do our best to His glory!

    You had me until you called suits pretentious and a waste of money. If I had it my way, we’d go back to the day when we had both morning suits and evening formal wear; the tux was considered semi-formal; and what is today’s business suit was worn as an informal lounge suit that you wore everyday.
    Call me crazy, but there’s something about the structured fit of a well-tailored suit that is very conducive to encouraging calm, dignified, self-controlled behavioural patterns. Not to mention, everyone looks really good in suit.

    • Hi wmphelder, So you agree with 95% of what I said…that is pretty good! 😉 The definitiosn of pretentious is “Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed.” For me a suit is pretentious because I do not deserve to wear clothing that is suitable for royalty. I am unimportant. I am saved not because of any worth found in me. But like I said this issue is for another topic so I do not want to get into this here. I will say this however: I often hear people say that if you buy a suit for $300 – $500 it will last you ten years which is about 1000 worship services – it is so worth it. But …7 years ago I bought a pair of pants and a couple shirts at Zellers for $15 and I am still wearing them. I have a few shirts I got off of a swap board and from a liquidator and my ties are all 5-15 years old. When I wore a suit to church I was simply trying to fit in, to conform to what I was “supposed to look like” …I was being pretentious: I am not claiming that everyone is being pretentious…but for me it certainly is.
