What to Wear

"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 one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3:12-14
 I had the honor to speak at a Women’s Group and this was the scripture that they wanted me to talk about. Wearing clothes is quite significant. We have the choice everyday to put on whatever garment we choose. Just as we go to our closet and look for an outfit to wear, we also wear our attitudes. We can put on the garment of grief, sadness, anger or any of those emotions that come from the enemy. Or, we have the choice to take out the new clothes, put them on, and wear the attitudes of kindness, forgiveness and mostly love. It is not the other person’s choice but it rest squarely on our own shoulders. We choose what we wear daily. We need not have to go back and take out the old sin nature that is torn and stained. We used to wear old dirty rags when we were not saved. But when we were saved, we now wear new garments and they are like new and clean clothes.We are all new creations in Christ and with that comes new clothes which is a whole new attitude and perspective in life. We choose to wear the new or the old. What do you choose to wear today?
