Have you ever considered how much time you spend getting dressed on a daily basis?
We live in a day and age where our society is bent towards self-awareness. We approach the day looking for ways to make ourselves look good. Are we giving the same attention to the inner being?
Colossians 3:12 reminds us to “clothe ourselves with compassion…”
Could it be that the greatest impression that we will leave with someone isn’t going to come through the clothes we wear, the grooming techniques we administer, or the bling we adorn ourselves with? But instead it is going to come through the words we speak, the attitudes we convey, and the actions we display.
Poet Robert Frost once said: “There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.”
In genuine seasons of revival, the followers of God take greater strides in dressing themselves with compassion.
