ON STEWARDSHIP
“Put on therefore, as the elect of God holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and by ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him” (Colossians 3:12-17).

Read the passage above; and, after a time for quiet reflection, share your thoughts with Our Lord. (1) List some of the things the receivers of the letter were to do.  (2) What was their motivation for these behaviors? (3)What would the Church be like if all believers lived up to this model? (4) How can we, as individuals, support each other as we all respond to these exhortations? (5) Identify one action that you can take. Share it with members of your church family and fellow believers and ask for their prayers.
