Prayers & Promises Week #11

The verse for this week is Colossians 3:12--
"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience."

In our verse this week it says God's people are to be clothed with several things and one of those is humility. How can we clothe ourselves with humility? We can look at the traits of Jesus to see how we can live lives of humility. He taught to put others before ourselves. We see Him stooping to wash the feet of the disciples in John 13. He is our example as He said in John 13:15--"I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you."

How can we follow His example today? To me we are to do things in our lives to put others first. This is true in our homes in our relationships with our spouse and child as well as in our church and out in the world. Look for ways to make the lives of others easier. Find things to do for them that will bless their day.

Let's remember these in prayer today:

~ spring break travelers.

~ from Whidbey Woman--That Ron's chemo is working, praise he doesn't have side effects. Also her cousin Bruce starts radiation for skin cancer soon.

~ friend Jenny and her family. They got their tickets to leave in a few weeks to pick up their newly adopted daughters.

Join us today for Spiritual Sundays.

Have a day of blessings!

A happy Spiritual Sunday to Bethany and all!
