Does it Matter to the Lord What We Wear to Church?

"You're wearing that to church?"

Children and teenagers across the country have heard that question asked of them countless times. That is because one of the most common stereotypes about the church is that you are supposed to dress nicely or at least dress a certain way. We even have a phrase for it: wear your "Sunday best."

But does the Bible say anything about our church clothing? And if not, where did this idea come from?

This is not just about what we wear when we gather for a worship service or a small group study, but about what we do every day of our lives. As Paul wrote to the Church in 1 Corinthians 10:31, "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (ESV).
