Modesty - In females, modesty has the like character as in males; but the word is used also as synonymous with chastity, or purity of manners. In this sense, modesty results from purity of mind, or from the fear of disgrace and ignominy fortified by education and principle. Unaffected modesty is the sweetest charm of female excellence, the richest gem in the diadem of their honor.
Modesty, as an act or series of acts, consists in humble, unobtrusive deportment, as opposed to extreme boldness, forwardness, arrogance, presumption, audacity or impudence. Thus we say, the petitioner urged his claims with modesty; the speaker addressed the audience with modesty.
So what about modesty for us men? What kind of expectations are there for us? How is it seemingly the hot topic to always address the issue of immodesty in women, albeit the primary focus there is in dress, but modesty can be had in more areas than physical dress can it not? How could we make a presumption or comparison on this same topic but in regard to the men in the Church? Something that should definitely be paid attention too, and I think we will give it a look.
Stay tuned because I think this one's not going away for a while, it's burden on my soul is too great.
