He, God Himself, chose each of us to be His own, the ones He loves, the ones He stays near. We have special attire because we’re His. There are several shades in the colors of our clothes. The color that sums it up is mercy. Mercy forgives when undeserved. Mercy gives a meal to someone hungry. Mercy serves with all its heart the needy of love though sometimes unappreciative.
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. – Colossians 3:12 (NLT)
