Things to Consider
Who is the hardest person for you to forgive? Why?
Who is the hardest person in your life to love? Why?
Why do you put limits on forgiveness? Love?
How would Paul encourage you to love beyond your natural abilities?
Are you united in Love and willing to put aside your personal beliefs for those who are far from God?

This week I will….lay aside my personal preferences and stand for unconditional love even when I don’t fully understand what I’m doing. 

Today’s Scripture Reading

7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. 8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. 11 Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Use your heads as you live and work among outsiders. Don’t miss a trick. Make the most of every opportunity. Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.
