Often, especially in our modern culture, even otherwise well-taught Christians will engage in behavior which they reason is for a good cause, but which would have been unthinkable in an earlier age. For example, in a misplaced effort to help promote the fight against breast cancer, many on this day are advertising the color of the undergarment they are wearing. While failing to see the oncological benefit of such a practice, I do see it as a betrayal of the lost virtue of modesty. Maybe there was good reason this would have been unthinkable in our grandmother's generation. I offer these words as food for thought, that's all.
