Colossians 3:12

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

I am very proud to be chosen by God, it’s a very special feeling to have.  Tenderness, mercy, kindness, patience and love.  Have you ever loved your family, your friends, a stranger or even your enemy in that way?  I know for the latter it’s a hard thing to do.  But remember each of us is made in His image and likeness.  And the same love He has for you, He has for your “enemies”.

So the next time you get dressed, be clothed in the Lord:



When you put on your make-up, put on tenderness,

When you put on your outfit, put on mercy,

When you put on your shoes, put on kindness,

When you take up your bag, take up humility,

When you take up your keys, take up gentleness,

When you leave your home, leave with patience,

And when you arrive, arrive with love.

God loves you, let us love others.

Holy and righteous Father, thank you for demonstrating tenderness, mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.  I ask for the power and the courage to demonstrate these qualities in my life, as I seek to, love as God loves.

In Your beautiful name we pray.
