Read Colossians 3:12-17

12 You are the people of God; he loved you and chose you for his own. So then, you must clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else. You must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you. 14 And to all these qualities add love, which binds all things together in perfect unity. 15 The peace that Christ gives is to guide you in the decisions you make; for it is to this peace that God has called you together in the one body. And be thankful. 16 Christ's message in all its richness must live in your hearts. Teach and instruct one another with all wisdom. Sing psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing to God with thanksgiving in your hearts. 17 Everything you do or say, then, should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks through him to God the Father.

Good News Translation (GNT)

We who would call ourselves ‘the people of God’ are not normally known for being compassionate, kind, humble, gentle, patient, tolerant, loving and forgiving.  But this is what Paul says we must be because of what God has done for us.


Help us to be all these things that you are dear Lord so that your light would shine out to the world.
