What shall I wear today? It’s a question we may often ponder while sorting through the variety of clothing in our closets. Most of us are fortunate to have a good selection from which to choose.
With the advent of the pandemic, our fancier clothing might be sitting virtually unused. But, whether working from home—or away from home—the question of what to wear can remain.
But clothing is just outerwear. It can reflect our taste in style or allow us to make a statement, but it doesn’t show how we are dressed on the inside—how we are dressed "spiritually," that is.
How do we dress on the inside? The Bible provides insight:
From Colossians 3:12, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”
From Matthew 6:25, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”
From Ephesians 6:13, when we struggle with worldly issues: “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
Check out Ephesians 6:10-17 for additional pearls of wisdom about spiritual clothing.
So, right now, I’m sitting in front of the computer as I write, wearing a favorite “older than dirt” t-shirt with a hole in the back seam and faded shorts. I’m looking a little raggy on the outside but hoping to be as spiritually well-dressed as I can be on the inside.
How are you dressed today?
