Better than Gore-Tex

I don’t know what the latest and greatest material is these days… I can recall Gore-Tex being the material to wear when in the great outdoors.

Colossians 3:12-17 tells us what is the best thing to be clothed in.  It’s the one garment that has stood the test of time.  It doesn’t fade or go out of style.

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.

 15-17Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way. (The Message, Eugene Peterson).

  1. When I saw the title of your post, I thought I might be in for some sort of comparison / contrast between our current presidential hopefuls and the AlGore/Bush . . .

    I’m glad I found something better.

  2. At least you take photos of your eyes and not your nostrils…although you do contemplate the lines on your face on your blog…

    Bob that is so you and cracks me up!
