Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience Colossians 3:12
Wow, this is a verse with weighty implications. First, isn’t it amazing that the God of the universe calls us His chosen ones? As a result of God’s love for us we are commanded to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. If I am honest I would not use these words to describe my speech, my attitude, or my thoughts most days. I think I definitely need to pray more before I speak, and if I find myself having a pity party or thinking unkind thoughts to surrender those thoughts to God.
