Today instead of offering my own words, I want to make the gift of these words that touched me this morning. They are the words of the Apostle Paul, written to believers in Colossus. Think how beautiful our world would be if we all just lived this advice:
"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
