So, how should one dress to go to church? Dear Abby takes up this question and posts many different responses, but agrees with the first writer in that there should be some deal of respect involved. But what should one wear?
One line of thinking is that Sunday is just one day out the week, and we are to worship God wherever we are, so why not wear what we wear to worship God everywhere else? God looks at the heart, not at the outward appearance, right? So why should I care if I’m in jeans with a tear and a beat up t-shirt?
However, I subscribe more to the reverential tone. Since what meeting at church is all about is giving worship to God, why shouldn’t I dress more presentable than normal? Most of the time I’m worshipping while doing something– like worshipping through this blog. However, when we get together corporately, I’m encouraging worship in myself and others by the way I present myself before the Creator of the Universe.
Where you you stand?
