Put on love and let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts ...


And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved,
put on a heart of compassion,
and patience;
bearing with one another,
and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone;
just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.

And beyond all these things put on love,
which is the perfect bond of unity.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
to which indeed you were called in one body;
and be thankful.

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you,
with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms
and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Colossians 3:12-17

I have often thought that if we could only have one chapter telling us what the Christian life should look like, it would be Colossians 3. So beautiful, and reminder needed. God bless your Mother's Day, Susan!
