Sunday Thoughts - {dearly loved}


"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."

Colossians 3:12-14

As I read this, I ask myself: have I clothed myself with the virtues?
I usually don't like the answer to that question :(

*******

I am attempting something BIG.
I'm not only going to try to memorize just one verse but I'm doing my best
to memorize 9 verses.
Ephesians 6:10-19 .. one of my favorite passages.
Let's see if I can pull this off :)

Have a wonderful Sunday!

A great verse!! Good like in your memorization... I know you will be able to do it!! I am good at memorizing the scripture but have a hard time retaining it a few months later... :/. It's such a comforting practice though!!

Blessings! Happy Sunday,

Gorgeous photo and verse. I need to imprint "patience" on my brain this week.

Such a great Scripture. I just memorized 10 versed from Romans 8. Trying to do the whole chapter, but I don't know if I can get any further.

If I can do it, you can!! Go for it! :) It's funny how much God will bring them up in your life as you memorize!
