Illustration Ideas: A policeman, a chef, a scientist, modest clothes for a girl, modest clothes for a boy
Lesson: What do a policeman, a chef, and a scientist all have in common? Each of them wear special clothes when they go to work. Their clothes help them do their jobs. A policeman wears his uniform so people know who to ask for help if something bad happens. A chef wears clean clothes and a big hat to keep his kitchen clean. And a scientist wears a coat to protect himself from chemicals.
Even though you probably don’t wear a uniform or go to work yet, your clothes still tell people who you are and what you do. When you wear clean, modest clothes, people can see that you know how special your body is, and they will think you are special too. Wearing modest clothing shows everyone that you are working to build Heavenly Father’s kingdom.
You can show Heavenly Father how much you love your body by dressing modestly. When you show respect for your body, you also show respect for Heavenly Father.
Thought Question: What could you do to show others that you enjoy being modest?
Challenge Discussion: Share your list you made during the week, looking for something daily to be grateful for about your body.
