When Jesus walked this earth, He was not poor. In fact, on the day of His physical death, He wore a garment woven from one single thread.

"When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom." (John 19:23 NIV)

It is a kind of clothing worn by the rich, a high-quality fashion. Even though it was blood-stained, the soldiers still gambled for it. They were not thinking of using it as a rug, because they didn't want to tear it to pieces.

Pastors can also dress nice and with high-quality material. This truth is not an excuse for excesses, but awareness for propriety and what is fitting for God's servants - with wisdom, in reference to their congregations. They stand as models and examples of dignity, inspiring the church to wear their Sunday best when coming into the house of God. The Lord, in His Excellency and Royal Highness, is worthy of our best.
