living our faith

Good afternoon friends,
Today's reading reminds us that our faith isn't just something we believe, but something we're called to live. When someone treats us the wrong way, we should think first about how God has forgiven us and figure out how we can forgive other people. Forgiveness is hard, but it's a lot easier when we remember that we have been forgiven. Above all, Paul writes, love is the mark of a Christian. How's your week going in terms of living your faith?

God bless,

Colossians 3:12-17
12As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. 13Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

14Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. 17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
