“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
How long does it take you to decide what to wear each morning? For some, it takes a certain number of outfit changes before finally deciding on that day’s fashion choice. For others, there’s no thinking necessary; just put on the uniform issued by your company and you’re ready to go.
Whatever your daily dressing ritual is, if you are a child of God, do not neglect putting on the very virtues that are undeniably Christ (Col.3:12-14). Clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, and love. Because no matter how fashionable you look outside, if you are not displaying the brand of Christ through your life, then it’s just as if you’re wearing filthy rags.
