That Perfect Outfit

Do you ever have one of those mornings that you can't decide what to wear?  You tried on that favorite pair of pants that suddenly are too tight.  Or perhaps, you grabbed a favorite shirt only to notice there was a stain right on the front!  Or maybe you pull out an outfit and wonder if it is out of style. However, in the Bible we are instructed to wear something that never goes out of style!  Colossians. 3:12 says: Since God chose you to be the holy (set apart) people He loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  Mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience never go out of style.  In addition to that, the Bible tells us what we should wear to bring the whole ensemble together; love.  Colossians 3:14 says: Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.

So, this morning when you are trying to put together that "perfect outfit", don't forget what God wants us to wear!  In fact, when we "wear" love, mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, we will be beautiful no matter what we choose out of our closet!
