WHAT TO WEAR?

How long did it take you to decide what you were going to wear today? Did you shove your way through drawers or rifle through the closet to find the clothes that best fit your mood? Perhaps you haphazardly threw on whatever was clean as you rushed out the door to your daily appointments. Are you a “set it all out the night before” type of person or do you just fly by the seat of your pants in the morning?

Some people take lots of time picking clothing out of their wardrobe each day while others barely give a moment’s thought at all. There are those most comfortable in 3 piece suits and shiny wingtips among others who rarely stray from jeans, a t-shirt and flip-flops. This variety is the spice of life.

But what about our wardrobe, spiritually speaking? Jesus told us to not worry about what clothes we’ll wear because there are far more important things. So what does He think we should wear?

“So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline...and regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.” Colossians 3:12, 14 (MSG)

As I read that last phrase, I realized no matter what our daily routine for picking out physical clothing, we need to ponder our wardrobe of love and be sure we never take it off. What if while we’re placing our next morning’s clothes on the chair, we’re also picking out possible ways to love on another person? What would happen if we all spent more time thinking about the love we are called to wear than the very shirts on our backs?

This is a truly challenging and thought-provoking concept to me, so I thought I would also share it with you. I believe if we spend ample time picking out our love-clothes, they’ll be more accessible when we need them. After all, Colossians tells us God has already picked out a fine wardrobe for us. We just have to be sure to put it on and never be without it.

Wherever this day finds you and whatever clothes you’ve covered yourself with, remember that love is the most important. As The Message beautifully says, “it’s our basic, all-purpose garment.” Love may not be the easiest to remember and certainly not always the most comfortable garment to wear, but the more we remember to put it on, the more a part of our very being it will become...


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
