Words to live by...
12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves,
you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy,
13 Make allowance for each other's faults,
and forgive anyone who offends you.
Remember, the Lord forgave you,
so you must forgive others.
14 And the most important piece of clothing you must wear is love.
Love is what binds us all together in perfect harmony.
15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.
For as members of one body you are called to live in peace.
And always be thankful.
16 Let the words of Christ, in all their richness, fill your hearts & make you wise.
Use his words to teach and counsel each other.
Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.
17 And whatever you do or say,
do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks through him to God the Father.
