Virtues

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12 NIV

These are all virtues that we should be shooting for everyday. We are God’s chosen people. Our Heavenly Father has so much love. He wants that love to shine in us. 

We are to be compassionate for each other. Compassion is showing sympathy for people going through misfortunes and suffering. We are to be tolerant and show concern for one another. This demonstrates God’s Love in us.

We are to demonstrate kindness to each other. We are to be friendly and show warmth to others. We need to have a genuine caring spirit. We need to have a gentle demeanor. This illuminates the Love of God that is in us.
We are to show humility. We need to humble ourselves. We should not let our pride get in the way. We need to be modest. This shows God’s Love that is in us.

We are to practice patience. This is a hard one. When we want something, we want it now. Sometimes we don’t get what we want because God has something even bigger planned for us. Do not rush perfection. Only God can to that.
