they wear us, so we must wear Him

I was going through my blog drafts and found this one from a few years ago that I never completed. So I did tonight, since the main idea was already there. A very good reminder for me.

They wear my high heels.
They wear my running shoes
They throw a towel over their shoulders just like him.
They wear his hat.

They wear us.

They wear the examples we set.  They mimic our voices, our words, our tones.  They clap to get each other's attention, just like we do when they aren't listening or obeying.

They comfort one another, just like we comfort them.

They yell at each other, just as we are guilty of yelling at them.

They wear us.

The most important thing for us to wear is Christ. 

To speak His words. To put on His attitude. To let love cover a multitude of wrongs and forgive seventy times seven. Because sometimes we want to hang on to their disobedience and let our anger fester.

To demonstrate grace and patience. 

I'm ashamed to say that isn't always the case. 

But I don't need to feel ashamed, because His grace covers me too.

And it covers you too.

But, we still must remember to wear Christ.

Because they are listening and copying and wearing us.
