12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; (KJV)
~Amplified Version –>12 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] tender-hearted 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]. Amplified Bible (AMP)
Please help me today to prepare myself to reflect my identity in you. A beloved child of the King.
Help me with my words and my actions regardless of who I am with (family, co-workers, strangers or enemies)
not be prideful (arrogant or self deprecating)
to be gentle
to be patient (enduring/ long-suffering) & good-tempered
and be loving and kind
Help me to clothe myself in compassion, humility, loving-kindness and gentleness.
Thank you for this day and all that it holds.
