Have you ever been asked this question: “How should I dress for church on Sunday morning?” If you invite friends to attend church with you, well, it’s not at all unusual to be asked that very question. All I say is that people go to church in every outfit imaginable.
I remember preaching in one service where the ushers wore tuxes and white gloves. And, in another, where teens collected the offering in shorts and tank-tops.
Let me report that the rule of thumb is to wear what you’ll feel comfortable in when going to meet Jesus. See, in His presence, you don’t want to feel overdressed, but you don’t want to feel under-dressed, either, or unkempt or too casual.
Why this given rule of thumb? Because Jesus will be there! No, you won’t be able to see Him, but He’ll see you. And with that in mind, you might just want to think a little about what you look like on the inside as well as the outside.
I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
