Colossians 3:12 states:
As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.
How are we doing with this?
How are we clothing ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience in regards to our political beliefs? Or do theses articles of clothing not fit our politics? Or do we have excuses as to why we clothe ourselves in other things like spin, anger, fear, being right, loyalty to party, division, labels, etc.
Here’s my advice to you – don’t give those other clothes away. Don’t share them with others to put on. The world doesn’t need more of any of those things. Burn those clothes instead.
And when you are done, put on the clothes of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. These aren’t easy clothes to wear. They aren’t crappy weak clothes either. In fact, these clothes are longer lasting and have some amazing stain resistance from the dirt, mud, and name calling that trying to dirty them.
Is it weaker to be compassionate or to be selfish?
Is it weaker to be kind or cruel?
Is it weaker to be humble or narcissistic?
Is it weaker to be meek or immodest?
Is it weaker to be patient or impatient?
In each case, it is much more work and much stronger to wear the clothing of the first option. It is a weakness of character to wear the other clothes.
