12 As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. 13Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord* has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ* dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.* 17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
We are chosen by God, (as we put on our clothes).. We are provided fruits of the Holy Spirit..( compassion, kindness, humility,meekness, and patience). We put up with each other, forgiving others. Christians are part of the “body” which is the Christian Church. In church we as Christians sing psalms ( giving thanks to God),and hymns ( strengthen each other thru joint singing). So as we enter the world daily we where these clothes so all see us and our faith in Christ Jesus.
This is a beautiful lesson for all.
