Dressing well is a form of good manners- Tom Ford
I admire people who don’t have much to wear, or various shades of colours, but can pair their attires in different shades and still look chick and decent. Those are the kind of Christians I like. This message is not to those Christians who look neat and classy all the time and make you want to know the benefits of being Committed. Rather this is to those all those who haven’t understood that they are role models worthy of being emulated. Impoverishment is not a lifestyle.
Sometimes, I wonder why a fully grown man or woman, especially sermonizers would prefer to wear their faded worn out suits rather than their colourful beautiful Ankara’s on a bright Sunday morning. Or why a woman would wear a buggy buggy shoe on a terribly long skirt instead of wearing a normal flat shoe or even nice sandals? What is wrong with wearing heels by the way? Why would a man or woman wear a really long purple t-shirt on a long orange skirt or trousers? Earnestly, has Christianity turned our eyes against matching appropriate colours and attires or being fashionable? These are issues that keep staining Christianity. Has Christianity prevented one from looking good in the house of God? Or from having clean polished shoes or kept hair? Seriously for me I dress my best on Sundays because ‘m going to the house of the Lord and I have to be beautiful. A lot of Christians would tell you, humility is the watch word. What has humility got to do with looking dirty and tattered on a beautiful Sunday morning? You don’t have to have 10 or 20 attires before you can dress well, I knew a man who only wore 2 shirts to his place of work and still looked responsible and presentable.
Seriously, dear Christians, it high time we sit down to talk about our physical appearances. You may say it doesn’t matter, but you have to understand that cleanliness is next to godliness. Wearing clothes that suit your body shape isn’t a sin or is it? Paring a long skirt and an appropriate top doesn’t mean you aren’t humble. You do not have to have much, but you can redefine the little you have. Look presentable and not like impoverished stricken citizens.
