Devos of the Week: Colossians 3:12

NOTE:  This Lenten season I will focus our devos on “clothing ourselves with the character of Jesus.” Often Lent focuses on “giving up something” and leaves “putting on the new” untouched. 

“As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion clothe-yourselves-with-compassion-kindness-humility-gentleness-and-patienceand kindness…” These qualities are not something we possess, but rather the manner in which we live with people in everyday life. I think of Jesus with the woman caught in adultery in John 8, how did Jesus show compassion and kindness in this real life situation? How does compassion and kindness show through my life?  How can I intentionally practice these in my life and ministry?  Holy Spirit, Spirit of Christ, clothe me with your compassion and kindness. Amen.
