Hello dear sisters! Today I wanted to talk about how a lady should behave in public. Women in today's day and age have had femininity and Bible teaching beat out of them and in it's place worldly teachings. The Bible calls us as Christian ladies to be meek, feminine, soft spoken and kind, the world teaches us to be loud, act like men and do whatever we please regardless of what the Bible says. When a girl goes out she should act with class and virtue, she shouldn't be rude, she should be meek and quiet. If she acts and dresses in a way that is provocative or loud she is going to attract negative attention to herself, and there will be people that will take advantage of her, and get the wrong impression about her. There was a group of girls in the grocery store the other day, they were over a few isles but you could hear every word they were saying because of how loud they were being, they were talking about a boy, giggling and making a scene, and when people would look at them funny they'd roll their eyes, not even realizing how silly they looked. This isn't how a young Christian women should act, Christian girls should come across different than worldly women, now obviously I don't know if these girls where Christians but that's just it! No one would know by watching them or looking at the way they were dressed. Christian girls
should be separate for God, they should act pure, modest and quiet. We are to be separate for the Lord, we shouldn't act the same as everyone else especially non-believers. If people just by seeing how you act and dress can't tell your a Christian something is wrong, we want to act and dress the way the Bible commands us too, the world has no standards on how you should behave or dress. The Bible has very clear instructions on how it wants women to behave, and we Christian women should do everything to follow what the Lord commands of us. We shouldn't act or dress like men because God didn't create us to be men, we shouldn't be loud or silly because God calls women to act with grace and meekness, and we shouldn't be rude to people because God calls us to be compassionate and loving to everyone, even those who offend us. So please dear sisters let us be set apart in the way that we act, let us act like Christian ladies.
“One of the first evidences of a real lady, is that she should be modest. By modesty we mean that she shall not say, do, nor wear anything that would cause her to appear gaudy, ill-bred, or unchaste. There should be nothing about her to attract unfavorable attention, nothing in her dress or manner that would give a man an excuse for vulgar comment. When we dress contrary to the rule of modesty we give excuse for unwholesome thoughts in the mind of those who look upon us, and every girl who oversteps these bounds makes herself liable to misunderstanding and insult, though she may be innocent of any such intention.”
1 Timothy 2:11

Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness.
Proverbs 31:10-31An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband
trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of
her life. She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the
merchant; she brings her food from afar. ...
1 Peter 3:1Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they
may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives,
1 Peter 3:7Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman
as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not
Titus 2:3-5Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They
are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to
be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the
word of God may not be reviled.
God bless dear sisters!
