What Are You Wearing Today?

What garment did you put on this morning when you got up? Whatever was necessary for the day’s events or chores, right? Were they rags or well-cared-for garments? Did they show off your best or worst features?

You dressed your flesh, for better or worse. But how did you dress your spirit? Was it for better or worse? 

Did you go through the day dressed in the rags of...


...and accessorized with...

*a mean spirit
*a negative tongue
*selfish actions

How did you look? Did anyone tell you, “That looks awful on you!”?

Or did you dress in intricately woven garments, embroidered with the precious threads of silver and gold and stitched together with a scarlet cord? 

This wardrobe consists of...


Did you enhance them with...

*good deeds
*kind words

Did they show off the Lord’s best features? Did anyone tell you, “You look wonderful today!”?

The moment you awaken in the morning, dress yourself properly. Put on...

*the belt of truth
*the body armor of God’s righteousness
*the shoes of peace
*the shield of faith
*salvation as your helmet
*the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Eph. 6:14-17)

Peter reminds us, “Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” (1 Peter 3:3-4 NLT)

“Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.” (Col. 3:14 NLT)

Happy dressing!

Today, I’m hooking up with...

    I love this Lynn; a keeper that I am going to refer back to later! The person we are on the outside expresses the true reality of the person we are on the inside; the person we appear to be on the outside is only an image; it’s who we are inside that really matters! :)

    Blessings and hugs,

  2. Great post Lynn, I was thinking the other day about my clothes and what to wear. I am almost 50 and I have gained some weight, nothing fits me anymore... well, you know what I am talking about. And then I was reminded of the scripture that says... do not worry about your life, what you eat, or your body and what you wear.

    Oh, Yvonne, I'm so honored to have you visit. Thank you so much! My heart is doing flip-flops! On my way to your site lickety-split! Bless you!

  11. What a beautiful and convicting post. As I read, I actually stopped and examined precisely what I had clothed myself with spiritually. Some garments were attractive, while others left me wincing at their ugliness and inappropriateness. "O Lord, please help me to spend as much time deciding what to wear spiritually as I do deciding what to put on physically."

    A Word Fitly Spoken

    This entry reminds of the verse that Rather clothes yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ and do not think about how to satisfy the desires of the flesh.
