In these challenging times with families in isolation the need for harmony within the household is greater than ever, the message translation of Colossians 3:12-14 has words that we can all relate too.
12-14 So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
We all can be quick to jump into situations and if we take a step back and remember the words above would we approach situations differently?
Recently I found this quote while looking for inspiration on harmony…
If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person. If there is beauty in the person, there will be harmony in the house. If there is harmony in the house, there will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world
1 Corinthians 16:14 keeps the words simple
14 Do everything in love.
