Any fashionistas out there?
Fashion has changed – its gone through some weird seasons. I was walking around Target with Aubrey the other day and realized there are some unique fashion things making its way back.
Fashion changes all the time – clothing styles come & go. But the clothes God calls us to wear are TIMELESS.
The #verseoftheday says,
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
Colossians 3:12 NIV
God’s fashion is TIMELESS
It’s being clothed with MERCY – the ability to have compassion toward
KINDNESS – moving toward people in love, not away from them in judgment.
HUMILITY – not thinking less about yourself, but thinking
about yourself less
PATIENCE – it’s assuming the best, and not giving up.
GENTLENESS – being a reservoir of quiet strength.
IF you wear these clothes, you are far more like Christ.
—If you are single, you’ll be more dateable
—If you are married, you’ll be more attractive and your
marriage will be healthier.
—Your co-workers will want to be around you and enjoy
working with you
—You customers will like you more
PAUSE AND PUT ON THE RIGHT CLOTHES.
I’ve always thought it was interesting how superhero’s have to take a moment and change
clothes before they go on their mission.
Every day, you and I could use a moment to pause and put on
the right clothes.
We should all follow a daily dress code.
If I don’t clothe myself with patience, tenderheartedness,
mercy, kindness, gentleness, then I won’t be ready for the day
I’m walking into.
