God’s Dress Code

Therefore, God’s chosen ones, holy and loved, put on heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.  Colossians 3:12 Not a bad wardrobe, you can get it from the Bible.

Mother always made sure that when we left the house we were dresses properly. She believed it was very important that we looked our best for each occasion. Our family was not wealthy and our clothes were mostly from Penny’s and Sears, but mother would make sure that they were cleaned and pressed and I looked my very best. The inspections I faced in the Navy were nothing compared to standing before mom, my trying to get out the door and her checking me out, I think she felt it was a reflection on her and indeed our whole family when we looked ill kept and wrinkled. I wonder if God feels that way about us, His children. I think He must sometimes be embarrassed by the way we live and thus represent Him. Not by our garments of cloth but by our habits, choices, and acts in life.

Dear Father, thank you for reminding us that you have a dress code for us to follow. How beautiful and handsome we would be if we would wear our garment provided from your Word.  Remind us Lord if we would do so then others would be able to see Jesus in us and in seeing Him they would want to meet Him. We would also be warmer for your robe is a perfect match for any weather, any climate, and any hour.

I sometimes wonder God why you love us so much, provide for us so wonderfully and stay with us even when we seek to run fast and far away from you.  Thank you Lord for being You.

Ivan
