Day 22 Holiday Challenge

Day 22 Holiday Challenge

I challenge you to dress beautifully today. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12 

In the midst of last minute shopping, Christmas parties, grocery store runs, and family gatherings, I challenge you to dress yourselves with the qualities of the fruit of the spirit so you will exude Christ to those around you in a much more effective way.

Be COMPASSIONATE  to the friend who has gone thru a tough time this year and wants to meet for coffee even though you have a hundred other things you could be doing.

Be KIND to the Salvation Army bell ringer. Slip a dollar bill into the jar and then, when your shopping is done, bring him a cup of coffee or hot chocolate on your way out.

Be HUMBLE and get on your knees and thank God for your many blessings. 

Be GENTLE when you speak to your children, spouse or co-worker. 

Be PATIENT with the grumpy grocery store clerk. Compliment her and confirm how hard it must be to endure frazzled shoppers all day long.

 I pray you are clothed beautifully today!

love, Shari

I'm reading this post after the holidays, but I love it. I want a wall hanging like the one you pictured to hang up by my closet door.
