Clothed perfectly

 Romans 13:14 “Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ…” I know that shopping for clothes isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.  So what does it mean to clothe yourself with Christ? 

Say what you mean

 I’ve been looking at the parable in Matthew 21.28-31.  This is my version: There was a manager of a firm who had two employees.  They were  called Tom and Kate.  The manager went to Tom and said, “Tom, I need a  report writing on those figures today by three o’clock this afternoon.”
