Today's reading: Colossians 3:12-14
As we move further into Colossians 3, Paul gives us a list of specifics to "put on" as followers of Christ. As I read through and considered each of these qualities, I did a little evaluating of how I was doing with each of the listed items. I felt like I was doing a fairly good job in some areas (having a compassionate heart, being kind, loving people, bearing with one another), but not so good in others (patience, meekness, humility). Whatever the case, I can certainly improve in all of these areas. Each one needs my consistent and regular attention in order for me to live well as a representative of Christ.
I invite and encourage you to do a little self-assessing with Paul's "putting on" list as well. Be honest with yourself. Then set some goals to improve in the areas where you're not as strong. Tami
