Love Forgives

Colossians 3 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

 

In all our relationships, whether it’s with a friend, family member or spouse at some point one of us may do something to make the other angry or hurt each other’s feelings.  We’re not perfect and we make mistakes.  It may be something small or something really big, either way it’s how we handle these offenses that determines how the relationship will proceed.   It takes genuine forgiveness to make a relationship work and survive. God has forgiven us of all our sins both big and small and He expects us to forgive others as well.

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 4:5

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.

 

There is no doubt we all live very busy lives.  We work, we have families to take care of, appointments to keep, people to see and things to do.  It’s important that we give our best to the things we do. Whether we realize it or not, people are watching us to see if we practice what we preach.  Always conduct yourself in a way that pleases God because you represent Him in everything you do. Let them see God in you and in everything you do.

Keep God First

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:2

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

 

This is the time of year when we start thinking about New Year’s resolutions.  We decide to make changes and declare goals that will improve our lives.  The Bible tells us we should set our minds on things above and that our thoughts and goals should be focused on Christ and our future home, heaven.  As we contemplate our New Year’s resolutions let’s be mindful to include goals that allow us to put God first in our lives.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 5: Thankful for God’s Peace

Colossians 3 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:15

Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts and always be thankful.

 

Today I am thankful that I have God’s peace in my life.  Not long ago, I was talking to a friend who was telling me about all the stress and drama in their life and afterward all I could think was, “Thank God I have peace in my life!” It wasn’t always this way though, through the years I’ve learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart and I’ve learned to let go and let Him have His way.  I know that God is in control and the closer I draw to Him the more peace I have.
