Put on Love
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I would guess that one of the first things you did this morning was pick out your clothes and get dressed. But did you remember to put on love?
No, that’s not a new perfume. It’s one of the characteristics Paul mentions in Colossians 3, where he says, “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience” (v. 12).
Wow! Can you imagine what our homes and workplaces would be like if each of us consciously put on those five qualities every morning?
The passage goes on to say, “Above all these put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” Love is what pulls the whole outfit together.
How much time do you spend getting dressed in the morning? And how much time do you spend putting on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, and above all—love?
