Monday Soap Verse

Colossians 3:12-13 (ESV) “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other, as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”

Paul tells us prior to this verse to set our minds to what is in heaven not what is on earth. We are to put to death things here on earth; impurity, evil desire, greed, idolatry, anger, wrath, slander, malice and put on your new self, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other, as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

As Christ, we need to be compassionate, be kind, be humble, be meek, and be patient. We also need to simply love one another and forgive one another.

Sometimes being kind, being humble being meek and being patience can be difficult especially when we feel hurt by others or feel betrayed. Forgiveness is easier said than done. If we seek God’s strength we can endure and persevere, allowing us to love and forgive.

What are your thoughts?
