Yesterday I was getting dressed and I put on a pair of socks.
All by myself and everything. You’re proud of me, yes?
The socks were uncomfortable and I knew that it was going to be a long day so I opted for another pair. Then I realized that they are always uncomfortable. Every time I put them on. And I endure them each time.
Crazy, right? Why are they still in my drawer? I should put them in Sandra’s.
But as Jesus followers we all put on things that should make us uncomfortable.
We have been redeemed from these things. God has custom-tailored clothing for us. We are dressed with the clothing of salvation and draped with the robe of righteousness. (Isaiah 61:10).
Let’s not wear cheap, off the rack junk or worse yet, hand-me-downs from our old nature.
