And Above all Clothe Your Self with Love

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience."

Colossians 3:12

     Within my high school, or any high school for that manner, you will always have that few people whom are obsessed with fashion, and they will all coordinate what they wear and when. Then you have people like me, that put on a pair of jeans, and the first shirt I look at in my closest.  I am not that much of a fashion person, although I do buy new clothes that I like, I'm not a fanatic that stays up to date on it.

     St Paul tells us to put on the clothes of compassion, kindness, humility,gentleness and patience.  He tells us that being part of Gods People we must put on these. Why? To receive God. To live the life that God has planned for us. Through doing this we can greet others and bring them into the kindness God offers. But we must clothes our selves, to become the disciple, longed by Jesus, that we must become.

     There is a man, who has put on many layers of humility, gentleness, and patience. Pope Francis. Given every opportunity he can, he connects with the people. He will give them a call, or write them a letter, or give them a blessing. Pope Francis is giving us the example of a perfect disciple that we should all try to imitate.


     Above all clothe yourselves with love, 
which binds everything together in perfect harmony 

Colossians 3:14

     In everything Love. Clothing your self with Compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience is clothing your self with love. For the way we act is the way we love. So if we act with kindness then we love with kindness. That is how we show our love. 
    
    Love holds everything together like glue. It hold everything together, and will do everything to make sure it doesn't let go. Love is what holds a family together; love is what God offers us daily. So let us clothe our selves with the Love that God offers us. Given at any opportunity let us use this love to love others. Love builds Family, Friends, and Community. So clothe your self with it. What you put on is what you will put forth. 

Unlike, me choosing the first thing I see, when It comes to spirtuality, we must pick and choose what we will clothe our selves with. Will it be love, that build community, or will it be something else. Will we choose to clothe our selves with the clothes of a disciple?

  1. Hi Mike! So fun to find your blog today! Oh my gosh, my current blog post talks about this issue of putting on a new self too. Isn't that something? It's so important to remember that we are different because of our faith, and should be 'new creations'. I hope you'll come on over and check out what I wrote. It's just amazing.

    Happy to meet you! I am your newest follower!
