I was completely startled, almost off my chair, as I read the news alert this morning. What are we allowing this world to become?
Today is international cleavage day.
A particular newspaper gives advice on how to keep the two sisters happy and healthy, and your cleavage is supposed to show their state.
Now look, I’m no professor of any sort, but I think this time round, I’m quite a bit smarter.
Why can’t we have an International Modesty Day? Why can’t we display the pride of our bodies in a Godly way?
Girls, (and guys) the best way we can look after our so-called “cleavage-image” is to keep it closed. Away from danger, away from exposure and anything that could harm it, even if it’s not physically.
I’m not sure how many guys are reading this, but I’m sure that they are probably just as disgusted at the naming of this day as much as I am.
And I bet they will appreciate our respect for our bodies too. God surely didn’t create our bodies to be put on display, what not more than to actually set an entire day apart as a heritage to a selfish cause.
It’s all it is – selfishness.
So my word for the day: go and celebrate this day by showing others what true modesty means.
