4. We need to develop a righteous response to the crisis immodesty has created in the church. As you read this, maybe you feel a twinge of guilt. I know I felt one as I worked recently on a new book for teenage girls on the subject of modesty. Perhaps you need to clean a few things out of your closet, as I did.

Maybe you see a reason for concern in your church. Don't be afraid to ask a women's Bible study leader or perhaps even your pastor to address the issue. God's call for purity in the lives of His people is worthy of the tremendous effort it will take to break through the strongholds of denial in this area of sin.

If you're married, be ready to help your husband walk through a visually tempting world. When I came home to the news that a Victoria's Secret model had unexpectedly visited my husband's mind, I didn't condemn him or react with jealousy or hurt. Rather, I thanked him for sharing his struggle with me.

We talked about it until 2 in the morning. As Bob opened his heart, I was able to erase the shame that had been caused by this woman's indiscretion. We agreed to work together to make sure visual temptation is treated with a zero-tolerance policy in our home.

Whether you are married or not, it's important to set a good example. Make certain the clothes you pull out of your closet on Sunday morning—and every day of the week—are a statement of your commitment to live a godly life.
