NalaP, you really laid yourself open to miriads of ideas about what constitutes self denial. Many of us have asked the same question, and received hordes of answers-- depending on what is the favorite subject of the people we are talking to.

Advice will run the gammut of ideas about the subject, such as long hair, long sleeves, high neck lines, no neck ties, no jewelry, no toe-less shoes-- you name it.

The best answer I have found is found in Titus 2:11,12. I have been satisfied to advise inquirers to let the Holy Ghost, which is the Grace of God, do the teaching and instructing of individuals about what they should deny a place in their lives.

His instructions are customized to each individual, and He will direct and instruct, and lead to the good life, WITHOUT ERROR.

Paul and Peter both wrote some very good general guidelines for lives that please God. They touched all of the bases-- fathers and mothers, children, husbands and wives, laborers and employers, citizens-- the works.

Let the Holy Spirit, who is the Author of the Word of God, lead you in each step.

You need have NO FEAR of following His leadings for your life.

God Bless!
