What Are You Wearing?🤔.
Hmm, right now I'm in a pair of blue jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Yesterday was extremely hot so I had on a pair of shorts and a sleeveless blouse then later switched into a pair of jeans to go out.
The most interesting thing about living here (Massachusetts) is that we always need to dress appropriately to fit our seasons. Without wearing the right garment in a particular season you might end up in the hospital or even worse! In Colossians 3:8-17, Paul lists the virtues that we must espouse as Christians then ties it all up by saying "over all these virtues put on love which binds them all together in perfect unity. This then means that if we exhibit all the beautiful virtues of Christian living but show no love, we have done nothing. 1 Corinthians 13 puts it beautifully, saying if we speak in the tongues of men and angels but have not love then we are like a noisy brass or a clanging cymbal. Love is at the center of God our father, for everything He did for us and does for us is motivated by love.
Unlike our physical clothes, love defies all seasons and we must put it on and keep it on all year round. Love is our sleeveless blouses and tees in Summer, our light sweaters in Fall, our jackets in Winter and our colorful dresses and shirts in Spring. Let us endeavor to show love to each other everyday, it can be in that smile, that text, that phone call, that act of service, that token gift, that visit. Do not be too preoccupied with your own issues to extend love to others. Jesus said when you did it (showed love by feeding, clothing, visiting) for one of these you did it for Me. Put on the garment of love and do not ever take it off. Show some love today.
