My grandson asked me to help him with his tie tonight. He’s nine (going on nineteen) and time is passing by so quickly. Just yesterday he was a roly-poly butterball baby and now he’s wearing a tie to a party. He put on a new outfit (a rearrangement of items from his own closet), quaffed his hair, added a tie and shades and he was definitely ready to go. This kid usually runs around in basketball shorts and T-shirts, but given the opportunity he loves to dress with ‘style’ (that’s his word choice), and his entire demeanor changes. Then to top it all off, he asked me to take his picture and then suggests that I use it for the devotional. His Mom thought that was a great idea and made a few suggestions on some topics, so God’s gotta plan and I am moving to His music.
Colossians 3:10 MSG
“Now 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.”
God is so very intuitive and resourceful and He readily shares these traits with us. We can change our attitudes with a a few changes to our normal routine. A quick rifle through our closet can result in a brand new outfit, and boom, our attitude is turning from gloomy to great. Add an accessory or two and we are on top of the world. A new hair style may make us look good, but it’s the really that feeling on the inside that is making us look better. It doesn’t take money, or anything extraordinary to get a new outlook. Our attitudes are adjustable and it’s our job to adjust them as needed. ‘Every item of our new way of life is custom-made by the Creator, with His label on it,’ and God’s grace is definitely the biggest asset to our wardrobe.
