Read today’s passage: Colossians 3:12-15
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
I will have to clothe myself in patience as I adjust to my new home and job. I have moved from high-speed internet to slow satellite internet. I have gone from being able to order practically anything I want, from groceries to take-out to my front door to driving 30 minutes to the grocery store and 1 hour to my beloved Starbucks. I have gone from a job I have loved and been in for many years to a new career doing something I have not done for ten years. I have left all my family and friends and have the task of making new friends in front of me. Yes, patience is something I will have to clothe myself in…
Patience and love go hand in hand. I am charged to love those around me; to do that; I will need to be patient. As I start on this adventure God has planned for me, I will need to clothe myself in these things. Take a moment to watch the video below and then try out the “So What Activity.”
So What Activity: Whom do you need to be more patient within your life? Do you have a new friend that you need to go deeper with? Do you have an old relationship that requires more patience? Spend this week trying to be more patient in your relationships.
