Pastor's Perspective - So Who Are You Wearing?
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. - Colossians 3:12
What look are you sporting these days?
It's hilarious to me how the fashion fads of my youth have come back full circle. The bushy bangy Efronian hair? I rocked that in the 70's; not because it was cool, but because hair gel hadn't been invented yet! Likewise I wore those hip concert t-shirts of legendary bands you find at Old Navy, not because it was faddish, but because I actually saved my money, bought tickets and went to the concerts! Jeans, watch/wristbands, sneakers, sunglasses - nothing new under the sun Solomon.
Though fads are obviously cyclical, there is a look that every follower of Jesus Christ should sport that never goes out of fashion - the garments and accessories of compassion, kindness, gentleness and patience - the trend He started and the look He rocked.
So, what look are you sporting these days? Do you need a Colossians 3:12 makeover?
Why not start today? Heaven will dig it there, people need it here, and it won't break your bank account!
