What Are You Wearing Today?

Colossians 3:12-14

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.  And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

As a matter of course, we take a little time at the beginning of each day to decide on what we’re going to wear.  Depending on whom we are going to meet, we choose the appropriate wardrobe.  Today, remember that you are an ambassador for Christ, and every person you meet is important to Jesus.  Take a moment before you go out into the world and put on compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness and patience.  Approach today determined to walk as Christ walked.  By the end of today, what will your acquaintances say you were wearing?
