This Sunday in youth we looked at fashion , and what the Bible might have to say about it. We discussed how the clothing choices we make, can effect the lives of people all over the world.
The Bible says:
‘So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offence. Forgive as quickly and completely as the master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. (Colossians 3:12-14, Message version).
What would it look like to ‘Wear love?’ Maybe it starts with looking for clothes that promise to pay their workers fairly.
Here are some websites to look at at home. Do some research into ethical fashion and then thinking about what you can do to play your part.
