Are My Skirts Too Short?

by Megan

When is a skirt or pair of shorts too short? At my school the limit is six inches above the knee, and I like to wear about this length. When I'm at home or even at church, I wear shorts or skirts with legging that are slightly shorter. I'm not very tall, so they still cover. Whenever I search for modest skirts, the only ones I can find are knee-length and look really long. What do you think?

How short is too short is something that you will get many different answers about. In some cultures your dresses must cover your ankles and pants aren't even permitted. But here in the US things are much different. If you are not a Christian there really is no too short. What ever your school says you should follow, but other then that it doesn't matter. The shorter the better so to say. However Christians look at things differently. How short is too short is between you and God. If you feel that you could walk up to Jesus and shake his hand, or bend over and pick up a pencil off the floor in front of him, then you have nothing to worry about. Just remember that you also need to think about others around you. Are there guys that go to your church that find you distracting? God doesn't take lightly someone trying to steel his spotlight. When you look at yourself in the mirror in the morning or at the store when buying new clothes, think to yourself: Who would I wear this for? Is this glorifying to God? Or am I trying to draw attention away from him? It's not that God doesn't want you to look cute, nobody will want to be a Christian if they have to wear ugly clothes and look like a nun, but just try and think about what kind of attention it will draw. Remember the commandment about whoever looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultary in his heart. Are you causing men to sin? This is between you and God. Pray about it.
