“Help me Lord to be content with second place and to make allowance for the fault of the other person. May I be quick to forgive, even as You, my Savior, forgave me.” (Colossians 3:13. The Message, & New Living Translation).
Our Lectionary Reading from the New Testament for this week is from Colossians 3:12-17. This part of Scripture admonishes us to pursue peace that is founded in love, a love that is described as a life full of humility, kindness, and forgiveness.
“And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts, and keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing.”
(Colossians 3:15. The Message, & New Living Translation)
