The Gig Line

The Gig line is a military term that refers to the alignment of the seam of the uniform shirt, belt buckle, and uniform trouser fly-seam. In order to be properly dressed, these three should align to form a straight line down the front of a person's body.

When we would be inspected every morning, The first thing our platoon sergeant looked at was our 'gig' line. That was an indication your uniform was on correctly. This was one of the marks of a disciplined soldier. 

As a Christian, we have a 'gig' line we need to check every day before we leave the house. Paul alluded to it in Colossians 3:12, "Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." We have to make sure our attitude 'gig' line is straight before the world inspects us. 

Before you leave the house, pray that God enables you to walk with a straight 'gig' line, and if something is out of place, ask him to help you straighten it up.
