What Your Clothes Say About You

Pile-of-Clothes

Chances are good you got dressed this morning…

I hope.

And, today, you’re making some kind of statement with your clothes.

“Look at me…”

“I could care less if you look at me or not…”

Or whatever.

Okay, now stop thinking about what shirt you picked to wear today for a second and think about other clothes that all Jesus followers should have put on this morning.

Yes, there is such a thing as spiritual clothes…

Mercy.

Kindness.

Humility.

Gentleness.

Patience

Forgiveness.

Love.

Have you put on all that today?

What do your spiritual clothes say about you?  What statement are you making?

Are you reflecting God’s holiness or are you just imitating the culture around you?

The world is looking for authenticity…people who act and look like Jesus.

So, dress carefully, and think about what you’re wearing today.

12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.  (Colossians 3:12-14)  (NLT)
