Getting the kids ready for going back to school can be a challenge, especially when it comes to clothing. What we wear can be a glimpse or a reflection of something we believe about ourselves. Today I read these verses and decided to make it my prayer. “So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.” (Colossians 3:12-14msg). Maybe while we are helping coordinate just the right first day outfit, we can remind them and us of this truth too.
