If you know me at all, you know that keeping fashionable or stylish in clothing is not my thing.  I am certain that some of the choices I make in clothing could bring some embarrassment to those seen with me.  But I am writing today to confess my biggest wardrobe malfunction ever, and sadly one I repeat.  It was pointed out to me in Colossians 3 this week.  There I am told that as a dearly loved, chosen and holy daughter of the King that I am to be clothed with:

  • compassion
  • kindness
  • humility
  • gentleness
  • patience
  • bearing with others
  • forgiveness – of others, even as God forgave me
  • And the browning glory – I am to be adorned with LOVE, which creates unity.
In case I have that all in line (!) the writer gives me a few accessories to include:
  • peace- letting the peace of Christ RULE in my heart (“let it rule” – sounds like I don’t have to ask for peace – I just need to respond!)
  • thankfulness
  • absorption in the Word of God. 
While I still don’t expect to spend any more time pulling together the wardrobe in my closet, I think it’s time to invest a little more time in updating my spiritual wardrobe!
