Daily word for 28 March 2015
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from Colossians 3:12-14, which says:
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves1 with compassion, kindness, humility,2 gentleness and patience.3 13 Bear with each other4 and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.5 14 And over all these virtues put on love,6 which binds them all together in perfect unity.7
As a Christian it is very important to love. When you act out of love, then your action will be a lot different then others will, because you have decided to honor God by not letting negative emotions control you. God wants us to be different from the worldly ways, by being compassionate, kind, humble, gentle and patient. You will see that by having these character trades that it is not only a blessing to your own life, but also to others.
