Devo of the Week: Colossians 3:13

“As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved…Bear with one another” A list of synonyms for “bear with” includes “put up with,” “make allowance for,” “withstand,” “accept,” “tolerate” and “endure.”  None of these is easy in the context of our relationships with people. How are these new clothes working out in my life?  What makes it possible to “bear with” when my way and needs are not being appreciated or met?  Lord Jesus, be it with family, disciples, sinners, Pharisees, or soldiers on the way to the cross, you demonstrate “bearing with.” Grow me to bear with all people every day.
