"Follow Wear"Stuart JonesThe alarm goes off. It's morning already. We lie in bed, thinking about our day and one very important question always comes up: "What should I wear today?" We brush away the cobwebs in our heads. Get up and get our morning cup of coffee—just the normal routine. Then we decide on the perfect outfit and we’re off. What we wear is important. We all want to dress appropriately and look our best. When we believe that we look good, we go through the day with more energy and confidence. Who we display on the outside is usually a representation of who we are on the inside. In Colossians 3:12-14, Paul challenges us to change our spiritual clothes. In verse 12, He wants us to clothe ourselves with a heart of mercy. Showing compassion when we have the power to punish. If someone has done you wrong, you have the opportunity to forgive them instead, which is another piece of the clothing that Paul suggests in verse 13. Paul also recommends kindness, humility, gentleness and patience—putting others ahead of ourselves and being considerate while also treating them with respect and tolerance. We are all on this journey together, and none of us has reached our destination yet. We need to be understanding of each other’s imperfections. If our days are characterized by trouble, anger, hurt, or bad feelings, it's time to invest in a new wardrobe. What we wear makes a big difference. So we should ask ourselves this question each day: What am I wearing today?
