Love Each Other!

It is sometimes said that Christians
Are the only bible that others see,
What do they read between the lines
When seeing you and me?
Does the love of Christ stand out
Does His heart of compassion compel,
Is the love for our Christian family
A story our lives clearly tell?
Do our eyes and our lips speak highly
Of those God puts in our lives,
Who, like us, are being changed
To be more like Jesus Christ?
I must admit that sometimes
I don’t tend to think this way,
And don’t see the bigger picture
Black and white becomes quite gray.
But I long to be an example
To be supportive, compassionate and “there”
To encourage and love unconditionally
With the love of the Savior we share.

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. Let the word of
Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish
one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms,
hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your
hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in
word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Colossians 3:12-17
