The analogy in this passage grabs my attention! Maybe because I do love fashion and dressing creatively is always fun.
Tomorrow morning as I put on my physical clothes methinks I will say:
this shirt = compassion and LOVE
these pants = kindness I will extend
as I’m brushing My hair humility and quiet Strength are being worked into each strand of hair to take with me throughout my day.
Shoes = discipline
Jewelry = even tempered and contentment
Scented lotion or body splash = Quick to forgive
Why? To remind myself that God has hand picked all of these out for me and I need to ask Him each day to renew these truths inside me again today.
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 2nd place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and complete as the Master has forgiven you and regardless of what else you put on wear love. It is your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it!
