The resources of the Father are plentiful for His children to be “clothed” for any and all circumstances, by putting on the character of Jesus the true Son.
Because we have His compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience, we can wear His character — our new true selves — every new day and thus be ready for any trouble that comes our way, relationally, personally, emotionally, spiritually, financially and physically.

Scripture reading: Colossians 3:12-15
(Put On the New Self)
12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
