On Modesty

I love this verse for it teaches us to be modest in every possible way we can. Modesty not only pertains on how we dress, but also the way we talk, act, think and treat ourselves and others. By so doing we gain respect from people around us and to ourselves as well.

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (1 Corinthians 3:16-17)

With all my heart I urge you not to look to contemporary culture for your role models and mentors. Please look to your faithful mothers for a pattern to follow. Model yourselves after them, not after celebrities whose standards are not the Lord's standards and whose values may not reflect an eternal perspective.

(M. Russell Ballard, "Mothers and Daughters," Ensign, May 2010, 18-21.)

  1. Well....I do agree that naming everything about Nehru-Gandhi family is perhaps not the best idea.....but are they doing it themselves or others are doing it to commemorate them?
