A young girl recently received an iPhone as a gift from her dad. When she was showing photos to her dad one day, he accidentally noticed a number of nude selfies in her phone as she was swiping through her photo gallery. Thinking for a moment, he then asked her:
“What was the first thing you did when you got your iPhone?”
“I put an anti-scratch sticker on the screen and bought a pretty cover for it” she replied.
“Did someone force you to do so?”
“Don’t you think it’s an insult to the manufacturer?”
– “No dad! In fact they even recommend using a cover for the iPhone”
“Did you cover it because it was cheap & ugly?”
– “Actually, I covered it because I didn’t want it to get damage and decrease in value.”
“When you put the cover on, didn’t it reduce the iPhone’s beauty?”
– “I think it looks better and it’s worth it for the protection it gives my phone.”
The father looked lovingly at his daughter and said,
“Yet if I had asked you to cover your body which is much more precious than the iPhone, would you have readily agreed?”
She was silent…
Indecent dressing and exposure of your body reduces your VALUE and RESPECT if it’s not to the right person.
Everyone has a choice with what photos they take of themselves and who they send it to. But like in the story above, if we spend so much time and energy taking care of our possessions, how much more careful we should be over our own bodies.
