"And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful." Colossians 3:14-15 (ESV)
This has been a difficult week for me thus far, for various reasons. I can choose to wallow in self-pity, anger and frustration, OR I can choose to "put on love," forgiving those who have hurt and continue to hurt me.
I can choose to worry about my mom as she continues to recover after a difficult battle, OR I can choose to praise God that He saw fit to spare her life and give her more time to witness to our unsaved family and friends.
I can choose to do a lot of things that are not Christ-like, OR I can choose to exemplify what being a member of God's family is all about. He's promises peace to those who do.
I'm so thankful He gave me that choice. How about you?
