[QTVOTD] Do you respect the uniform?

“Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper].” Colossians 3:12 ->me: The way I see this is not much different than the way I felt when I put on the uniform in the Air Force. Whenever I donned my BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) or dress blues I always felt responsible to conduct myself in a manner worthy of the uniform. This really resonates with me in how we are to put on the uniform of a devoted follower of Christ seeking to uphold and represent that uniform with all that it stands for…our humbleness in our salvation and gratitude for God’s grace on us daily. In that uniform we should be extending those same things that a storm ravaged population would see in the Red Crosses represented on a volunteers vest -> help, comfort, peace, hope, and kindness.
