Old Clothes

A husband reluctantly agreed to allow his wife to sell some of his old clothes in her yard sale. He thought they were fine, but she insisted that they were outdated.

One shopper came by, picked up one of the old outfits, and exclaimed, “This is perfect!”

The husband quickly gave his wife a smug look—until the woman continued, “These will look terrific on my scarecrow!”

Sometimes we think the filthy rags of our sinful lives look pretty good. But in reality, we need to exchange those dirty old clothes for the robes of righteousness that Jesus offers to everyone who will accept his grace and mercy.

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”—Colossians 3:12.
