Clothing Picked By God!

by Hazel Straub

Has shelter in place made for too much time with the same people or with social media? Upset with those who do not wear a mask or keep their social distance? Longing for something else? It is time for new fresh clothing and a new way of living with others, especially those with whom we disagree.

Apostle Paul talks about wearing clothing of love and mercy. During this season, it is so important to forgive anyone who has offended. Rather than allowing fickle emotions to rule, let thankfulness to God, love, and peace ooze out of us. Christ lives inside of believers and it is important for him to rule our way of thinking, will, and emotions. As a result, harmony and peace will prevail over fear and anger.

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.(Colossians 3:12-15 NLT)

  2. This is just in time, I was just discussing with someone about people who seem to not take seriously our new normal. Thank you for encouraging me to submit to God and wear the clothes only He provides.

    • Grace, you are welcome! Our attitudes and how we treat others is so important. We can become legalists who have a prideful attitude towards others who do not act as we think they should. Wearing God’s clothes makes such a difference! Blessings!
