Putting on...

Col 3:12
So, as you have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, gentleness and patience.
God empowers us to put on compassion, kindness, gentleness and patience... what does this look like?
How can I put on a hear of compassion? I think the first part gives us a hint... We have been chosen, it is a choice we make. When I really don't feel like being kind because someone has done something to upset me, I can chose kindness instead of bitterness. When someone says all kinds of evil against me, I can chose to be gentle instead of offended. When someone is purposely testing my nerves... I can chose patience, put on patience instead of impatience and aggravation.
Help me chose these beautiful things You have put inside of us Father in Jesus' name. And I repent for my impatient attitude, bitterness and taking offenses by Jesus' blood. Forgive me and I ask You to send away anything of this carnal nature far from me in Jesus' name. Thank You for Your mercy and grace. Thank You for helping us walk in supernatural love.
