Daily Wisdom

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity…” Col 3:12-14

This devotion may be a little late, some of you have already dressed and left the house. But, if so there’s still time to change if need be!  Paul directs you to make sure you put more emphasis on what clothes your heart compared to your body. Calling you put on the attributes that show you in Christ-likeness, and making sure your strongest appearance is love.  Man is challenged to put more emphasis on the appearance of the heart than the body… Pro 4:23 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” You can look good, and yet appear bad… know that you can create a visual image, but it’s what proceeds out of your heart that defines you. What others see in you depends on what is emphasized about you; it’s either how you look or how you love?

There is no amount of physical beauty that will ever be as valuable as a beautiful heart!
