Video - Dads, you must tell your daughters how to dress.

I am very limited in fashion sense. So my typical approach is to stay far away from the clothing issues of parenting. But being a spiritual leader includes protecting your daughter's modesty. Here is a helpful video clip from John Piper on the subject.

Greetings from South America!

I think that perhaps the clothing wars in the home may rival the fast-fading worship wars in the churches (please don't make an assumption about my worship style with that statement). Sadly, we fathers have abdicated our place of spiritual authority and we have invited culture to dictate our standards. I pray we change that before Jesus returns.

Kevin,
Thanks for your comment. My daughter is still young, I pray that I don't become like the dads that Piper warns about in the clip - afraid of their own daughters.
