Day 3 - WARDROBE {2016}



Today is Day 3 of the "write31days" challenge; and I am linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday group for this years' "free writes".  Check out all of my posts in this series here.


The word for today is Wardrobe...


My closet - wardrobe - is full of clothes I wear on a daily basis; nothing fancy or formal ... not even very many outfits that are suitable to wear to church or a wedding or funeral.  Just the basics; yet that is really all that I need in this retired life!




In Matthew 6, God tells us not to worry about the clothing we put on; we do not need to worry about such things as clothing or the food we eat.  In fact, we do not need to worry about anything!

Yet, as Christians, we should be concerned about what we put on; we should dress in appropriate ways.  Not in ways that are unflattering or unattractive, and certainly not in sexy or revealing ways.

OK, so perhaps there is a way to dress appropriately, maybe even a little sexy, that could be attractive and flattering, yet not inappropriate. But, we should certainly be aware of how we look to others.

Colossians tells us in Chapter 3 that we should dress in the wardrobe picked out for us by God:

God wants us to attract others with our compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, forgiveness, patience ... and love; not the clothes we put on our back!

So, whatever you put on each day, be sure to put on love!
