Everyday Prayers: Change Your Clothes

What do you consider when you choose your clothes for the day? Impressing others? What’s clean? What’s comfortable? What’s the weather? What fits?

Sometimes, the more choices we have, the more difficulty we have choosing. Our closets are so full, it’s difficult to decide what to wear, and our reasons for choosing what to wear become cluttered with options. Focus your choices. Choose to know God as you change your clothes today. Commit to wearing what he says suits you (and honors him) best.

God has chosen you and made you his holy people. He loves you. So you should always clothe yourselves with mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other, and forgive each other. If someone does wrong to you, forgive that person because the Lord forgave you. Even more than all this, clothe yourself in love. Love is what holds you all together in perfect unity. Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking, because you were all called together in one body to have peace. Always be thankful. Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly. Use all wisdom to teach and instruct each other by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Everything you do or say should be done to obey Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus. (Colossians 3:12-17)
