Actions speak louder than words

The way we dress and the way we act represent who we are as people. In order to reform our view on sex we must consider our thoughts, words, and actions. My last few blogs talked about how our thoughts and words can influence us, in much of the same way our actions also impact us and those around us.

The virtue of modesty helps us use our bodies in the right way, to protect our value and who we are. As human beings we desire to be treated with love and respect. When we dress provocatively we are sending a message that our body is the best part of us and there is no need to actually get to know us. When dressing modestly however, we are sending the message that there is so much more inside of us that is worth anyone’s time to get to know.

Our sexuality is such a special gift that we need to protect it. The way that we act today may influence us a year from now or even ten years from now. Jason Evert asks people to think about their future husband or wife as teenagers. Looking at it from the perspective of how far in a relationship you would want your future husband or wife to go physically with their current boyfriend or girlfriend adds an interesting twist.

Actions speak louder then words. Our thoughts become our words and lead to our actions. It is so important to realize that people are always watching and to be cautious and conscientious of that. At any given moment someone could be forming an impression of you; what do you want that impression to be?
