idolatry.”

now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger,

SIGNS
OF LOVE:

  • Compassion;
  • Kindness;
  • Humility;
  • Gentleness;
  • Patience;
  • Forgiveness.


Colossians
3:12-14 (NIV) says

Therefore,
as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves
with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear
with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance
against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

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

This
Scripture tells us to
“Clothe
Ourselves”

with all of these signs of love. These are the relationship builders
which we are to express as members of Christ’s body.

As
Christians, we represent Christ at all times – wherever we go and
in whatever we say or do.
