Holy People

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

~ Colossians 3:12 [NLT]

We need God’s help to be people defined as those who show mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Today, ask God to equip you through the power of your Holy Spirit to reject my sinful nature that wants to be harsh, unkind, proud, brash, right, and impatient. With God’s help pause before speaking so your words reflect a heart of love for others and not a heart of criticism. Remember that when you  feel justified in your unkindness you are called to a higher standard and are accountable to God first.
