I love remembering this verse as I get dressed in the mornings. So many days, I’m running around in the morning trying to figure out what to wear… these days... just a few days away from welcoming our 3rd kid into the world, most things don’t FIT, so it can be complicated, :) But what if instead of rushing about in a flurry of worrying about what clothes to wear in the mornings, I focused on clothing my spirit with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience? What if I began my days remembering the forgiveness that God has lavished upon me and making sure to forgive those who have hurt me? What if before I put on any outfit, I make sure to put on LOVE... to remember that I am deeply loved by the God of the universe, and because of that, I can love those around me... even when they are difficult and hard to love. I’m not knocking cute outfits here, and I’m not saying it’s wrong to think about what you’re going to wear each day, but I’m pretty sure my heart and my family and all of the people I encounter each day would be better for me focusing first on putting on LOVE.
