Put On Love

“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 one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Col. 3:12-14

If we follow Christ we’ll see people through His eyes of grace. He loved to forgive and to accept. He had enough grace for the prostitute, for the criminal on the cross, for His disciple who walked away from Him in the hours of shame and despair. This is a true nature of a Christian who shows grace to those who are different in their lifestyle, political orientation, diet preferences, or spiritual experience. Put on love today.

This last week was pretty full with many committee meetings, visitors in my office, but mostly with home visitations of our elderly church members. We have many precious church members who cannot come to church due to their physical condition. They need our grace and our hugs. I am so grateful to our elders and lay members who visit our elderly friends. God bless you for your caring hearts.

Our Pathfinders were camping last weekend. During the Board meeting on Monday night, David Reynolds reported that the club had a great time inspite of the cold weather and a storm. They are truly a brave bunch of young people. I am very confident that our club will continue to grow next year.

Here are a few photos I downloaded from Matt Geraghty’s Facebook (without his permission 😦 Thank you, Matt! )
