A man and his wife were preparing to go out one evening. The wife came up to the husband and said, “Is this outfit modest?”
“I dare not say,” replied the man.
“Honey, I’m just asking if you think the outfit is modest or not.”
The husband said, “I should not speculate concerning this matter. I have a personal preference, but I dare not give that.”
“Why not?” the woman replied.
“Because I do not have a chapter and verse to tell me whether or not that is modest. The Holy Spirit is bound to use the word alone. Shouldn’t I?”
