Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. Colossians 3:12-14.

Dear God, What a powerful verse. First of all You remind us who we are. We are your beloved. That reality is hard to grasp somedays. Give us a clearer understanding what that means and how to rest in Your love. Help us to put down our strife and striving so we can be Your love extended to others. We know this is more than a good idea, or a high and lofty goal. You tell us we must be forgiving even to ourselves. Amen.
