Does God Care About How We Dress???

My answer to this is yes. 1 Peter 3:3-4 says "Do not let your adornment be merely outward-arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel-rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gently and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." But how do we get to this point???I have always had a problem with people judging someone based off of the way they dress. In my opinion, the closer we get to God, the Spirit will change us on the inside first, then the outside. Now, I was one, that loved to wear my mini-skirts!!! But as I developed a closer relationship with God, the Spirit changed me. And when I would put on my smini skirts or short dresses, it was a feeling of uncomfort that drove me to change.I think, when it comes to the way people, mainly women, dress in church, if we take the time to develop a chiristian relationship with these women and help encourage them to seek a stronger relationship with God, the Spirit will do the rest. Because just like me, I started out in church with a short skirt, but I am now a woman that understands how inappropriate it was, and I now, still enjoy dressing, but in a manner that I feel is pleasing to God. So what do you think??? Do you think there should be more mentoring to younger women, not so much attacking them for there appearance, but helping encourage them to seek God? Because some of the best dressed women in church, are just that, best dressed women in church. What is their heart dressed in? We need to pay more attention the the heart, and let Spirit will do the rest. And lead by example, at all times."Still wearing my Stilettoes"
