“Don’t lie to one another. You’re done with that old life. It’s like a filthy set of ill fitting clothes you’ve stripped off and put in the fire. New you’re dressed in a new wardrobe. Every item of your new way of life is custom-made by the Creator, with his label on it. All the old fashions are now obsolete. Words like Jewish and non-Jewish, religious, and irreligious, insider and outsider, uncivilized and uncouth, slave and free, mean nothing. From now on everyone is defined by Christ, everyone is included in Christ.

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you; compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Mastor forgave you. And regardless of what else yo put on, WEAR LOVE. It’s yoru basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.”

…clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience…”

Thought from Colossians 3 … especially fitting on a day we remember a man and a dream for equality.
