Colossians 3:12 – 17 Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; v. 13: Bear with each other and forgive one another.
How many times have we reacted in a way we probably shouldn’t have, in hindsight? Can’t we connect these times to situations that are extenuating for others, such as an old, partially blind person driving extra slow in the left-hand lane or a crying tired teething hungry baby? Or, what about when we grumble at the lack of punctuality of others, only to discover that traffic was backed up due to a ______________?
Or, overreacting because you insist you’re right, to come and find out that the other person was right all along,, and, minimal time should have been spent on carrying on (not me ;))? Or, how about teachers and their interactions with kids…are our reactions always appropriate, only to learn that their home lives make you feel sad?
Maybe they need to get to know Papa a bit more?
What if we all decided to just give a little love………my friend? Let’s not be so grouchy. Geez! You never know what they have goin’ on…
“Your compassions never fail, Father. May we mirror Your heart by showing compassion to others.”
