Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (NIV)

            This business of clothing, I have found, is quite confusing to many new readers of Scripture. Isaiah tells us of our stained souls and then compares the cleansing of them to make them like wool. Paul tells us to “put off the old man,” as if the old man here was like an old coat. David refused the king’s armor as inappropriate for him at his age, and in his understanding of his purpose. Confusing, Eh? There are dozens of references in scripture to garments and commands to “clothe yourselves”.

            Think about the clothing you wear. Is there a purpose in the way you dress? “’m not dressing for anybody but me.” The independent minded person might say, but there again, what you’re wearing says something about who you are. No matter what, there will always be those people who will accept or dismiss you based on what you are wearing. We are a shallow and for the most part a morally bankrupt people. So then, in our attitude, in our approach, why not “clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience”? Every day you have a choice. What will I wear today?
