True Christian Modesty

By Veronica Mwihaki

Frankly speaking, I used to wear anything and not feel ashamed at all. I had this “don’t care” attitude without being apologetic to anyone.

But things slowly shifted when I surrendered my life to Christ, I became more conscious of what I wear, I came to understand that I am a representative of Christ in the earth and that my actions must be in alignment with the will of God.

I haven’t yet attained perfection, but as days go by I am being perfected.  I am more than glad to share what God has been teaching me on True Modesty.

Depending on the culture (looking on our upbringing), religion (checking on our belief system) and our occupations (influence from our careers) we draw different meaning and definitions of modesty.


There has been a lot of confusion and misconceptions about modesty and today I will try to demystify the matter.

To me, True Modesty is an art:- it sends an intended and specific message to its audience, let’s use music as an example:  the same way a musician sits down and composes a song, assembles the instruments:  the bass guitar, the solo guitar, the drums, the keyboard, the piano, the trumpet with which each of the instruments has a role to play with the intent of bringing out something delightful and beautiful, the same concept applies with true modesty.

Before we dress up, we have to try and envision ourselves as the musician composing a song.  We have to be aware of the message want to communicate.

Our dress or pair of trousers is the song, our ornaments should take the positions of the musical instruments, how we have made our hair sends messages to the audience and of what we put on and how we look should also play a certain role.


Different types of music are played on different occasions, for example, songs played in a synagogue and a political rally is different as the audience and mood may also be different, music enjoyed by a 3 year, 21year and a 50-year-old is different, the same applies to true modesty, how we accessorize varies with the occasion.

Being modest communicates what our values are and what we believe in.

True modesty is devoid of show off; it’s not exaggerated because it flows from the heart. True modesty has no duplicity.  It has to be constant!  It has nothing like being modest in the public but in the private you are not.

    I totally agree true modesty can not be duplicated.It is an individual journey however and God molds and convicts each one of us individually at his own time .
