“Therefore as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
These are the traits by which we will be known as children of Christ. People will see these things in us and want to know more. These characteristics are not natural to humankind. It is only through the saving love of God that anyone can hope to acquire them. But once you are a child of God, this “clothing” is readily available – it is there for the asking!
DEAR LORD, LET ME LIVE THIS DAY EXHIBITING THESE TRAITS,
KNOWING THAT THEY COME FROM YOUR POWER, NOT MINE,
SO THAT OTHERS MAY SEE YOU IN ME, AND WANT WHAT
I HAVE IN YOU. IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AMEN.
