Dressed.

{Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.} - Romans 13:14

I am a morning person no doubt. I love to wake up, look out the window with a cup of coffee, and just relax before a busy day begins. However, when it comes to getting ready, I will  always be the late one...even though I wake up with 4 hours to spare before leaving. For example, getting ready for church today, I changed five times just trying to decide if this outfit worked or not!

Just thinking about how much time I spend getting ready, it made me wonder if I allot that much time to dressing in righteousness?

A KJV dictionary defines righteousness as "Just; accordant to the divine law. Applied to persons, it denotes one who is holy in heart, and observant of the divine commands in practice; as a righteous man." Personally, I think this translates into hiding yourself within Christ, making all of your actions reflect Him and inevitably producing fruits of love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). 

By clothing ourselves in these things, not only does it allow us to stand firm in the faith (Ephesians 16:14), but also lean on God and point others to him. So, this week when picking out the perfect spring dress or swiping on a pink lip, remember to pair those with grace, truth, and kindness.
