Paul reminds the church in Colossae of the importance of forgiveness and love in living as a unified body, but his message of being nice is still relevant today. As my principal states, we expect respect, honesty, and nice behavior from others, but we also need to demonstrate these qualities ourselves. As Christians, we have the ultimate role model in Jesus that can help us live with others. We should follow Jesus' example of forgiving others, caring for others, and showing love to all.
Be nice to others by loving and forgiving in order to live as a unified body of believers!
Thank You for demonstrating love by sending Jesus to show love and forgiveness. Help me to model my behavior after His, so that I can be forgiving and loving throughout all areas of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
