1/9/14 Daily Devotion

Colossians 3:14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, the bearing of each other’s burdens, and forgiveness are all wonderful qualities that must be found within us as Christians, but without love they are fleeting, without love they are unfocused. Love binds them all together. Love causes them to be heard clearly. Love allows the true purpose behind their extension to be seen and felt. Love allows them to change people without any personal agenda present. How can we forgive without love? How can we care without compassion? How we can serve without gentleness? How can we tend to the needs of the community without kindness? How can we help the elderly without patience? How can we bear one another’s burdens without love? Love binds them all together; the love of God flowing from us into the world.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help my actions be filled with Your love.
