Devo of the Week: Colossians 3:12 (part 3)

“As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with…patience.” I have heard Christian friends talk of patience probably more than any other virtue.  Sometimes they are praying for it, sometimes telling people not to pray for it since God might give you really hard things to bear. What if Paul’s imagery is right, that patience is a virtue that we put on like clothes?  It might not feel right.  I might look a strange wearing that new outfit, but what if I simply start practicing patience in all situations?  Lord Jesus, through intentional practice; make me more patient daily.
