Wear Love

The butterfly was flitting all around the plants.

Since it looked different than the butterflies I usually see, I was particularly interested in it.

It was beautiful.

Elegant.

Quick.

It proudly displayed the color and form that God had given it.

In The Message, we are encouraged to dress in a wardrobe that God has picked out for us:

 

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.

—Colossians 3:12-14  The Message
