Read Colossians 3:12-13
In the morning, a general part of everyone’s routine is to put their clothes on. As a child and teenager, I used to have nightmares about going to school on the first day having forgotten to put clothes on 🤦🏼♀️. In reality, we would never do that.
Colossians tell us to clothe ourselves with these things… yet most of us forget that everyday.
How would it completely change our day or our week if we actually put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, forgiveness and love?
I spend way too much time on social media. In that time spent, I see the opposite of these things. I see it in the comments from strangers and from people I know well (including ones I know are “Christians”). I’m also not always innocent.
Maybe the change that we’re looking to see in the church, in the country and in the world will be found in how we start our mornings.
We can’t forget to put our clothes on.
Today, I’m not giving a question. Instead, I’m giving a challenge. Be intentional this week about putting on your clothes (compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, love)
Hint: there are 7 of them, so focus on one every day this week.
Lord, this morning, clothe me with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Help me to forgive those that wrong me and to show love to everyone who comes in my path. I pray that I am a light in the world and a testimony of Your goodness. Let them see you everywhere I go.
In Jesus name,
