What Not To Wear

4b4b953247d99ade571b424e03a716fe c3af324eb45ebd06a3d8564f8ac3109f (2)I like fashion and style.  One of my favorite shows to watch on style  was called What Not To Wear. I enjoyed watching the transformations and education on what NOT to wear.   Have you ever had a fit over an outfit?  Clothing sure gets a lot of attention in church and sometimes we are too quick to judge by what people wear or don’t wear.  Now I will admit there have been times when I too was distracted by some extreme church attire and rushed to judge someone too harshly or too quickly.   As a corporate worshipper I am constantly reminded of the responsibility to stay focused on God and not on a pair of shoes or clothing. I learned how to dress for the occasion of worship one day when I found myself in front of a closet full of clothes, shoes and accessories asking the question, what am I going to wear to church? Not even realizing the blessing of having a choice, I changed a few times after becoming frustrated.  I couldn’t find the right shoes, sleeves, or jacket that fit. I was busy making sure things weren’t too tight, too low, too short, you know covering all my basis of the “toos.” Time did not appear to be on my side but the Holy Spirit stepped in to act as my personal stylist. He showed me through scripture, just how good I looked wearing godly character in Colossians 3: 12-17. Tender mercies, kindness and humility are always in style. Meekness and longsuffering match perfectly. Bearing with one another and forgiveness comes in every color and size. Peace and love are a true fit for any occasion. I was quickly reminded of the spiritual things I needed to put on versus the material things. Getting dressed now is easier when I consider what I am to clothe myself in for worship. I no longer have fits over an outfit.  Now that’s what I call Living On Pitch.
