I think it is almost always appropriate to dress your best when out in public including when you go to church, but I grow tired of people who are nasty about those who are not fancily dressed at church. God is far more concerned about the condition of your heart, then he is the holes in your shoes! Not everyone can afford nice clothes. If you are offended by someones clothes at church don’t be mean to that person, find out if they can afford better. If it turns out that they are struggling, be a real Christian and help them find the resources they need to improve their lot it in life. Don’t shun them because they bought their shoes at the dollar store!
I thank God that this post is in no way shape or form connected to my current church. Many of our members carry a deep love for the homeless in our area and do everything they can to help.
If you are local to the North Augusta area I highly recommend Fairview Presbyterian Church
