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. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. (Colossians 3:12 MSG)
I love these verses! God has clothed each one of us with “in style” qualities such as compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline, etc. All we have to do is WEAR THEM. The wardrobe God has given to us is NOT to be put in a box and tucked away in the dark closets of our lives. He wants us to SHINE BRIGHT with the radiance of His garment, of Him.
The last part is my favorite. “And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.” We need to WEAR LOVE. Don’t hide it. Don’t leave it at home when you go to work. And by all means, don’t discount it’s power. Love is our basic all-purpose garment! Never be without it! Amen!
