Rules of Engagement

Posted by Reid on May 23, 2007

We all need reminders of the most basic of rules. As we sharpen each other and find our place in this world, we need to come back to home base on occasion and remember what is important. When we get ready for battle and to fight for what is right we need to be sure that our outfit is appropriate. I am glad that God tells us what to wear…otherwise I would be lost.

 12-14So, 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.
