Favorite February Scripture
I read these verses early in the month and have found myself clinging to the forgiveness and love they call us to time and time again. I tried to share this verse with a friend one snowy night and was unable to recall the words. I have not memorized them, but have clung to the message within.
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy, and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
May God's love and forgiveness be so real in each of us that it is absolutely uncontainable.
