Clothe Yourselves with Compassion

Reflect

Clothes cover us almost completely, becoming a visible part of our identity. What would it look like to be so surrendered to God that when people look at us they immediately see his attributes? Which of our relationships most needs more compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience?


Pray

Lord, clothe us in your attributes.
Help us to act accordingly
in all our relationships, but especially in those closest to us,
in which it is often most difficult.

Those pain points in our lives are where we need your grace the most,
and yet we resist going to those places to meet you there.

We ask for your guidance to right the wrongs,
whether committed by us or by someone else.

In the end, all that matters is that peace and goodness
are spread throughout our lives and the world.

Amen.


Act

Give a gift, write a card, or forgive someone you are close to—a spouse, parent, friend, or child.
