It makes me smile

Here is a verse that makes me smile every single time I read it:

Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.

It is a great assurance to know that God does not command something without knowing how difficult it might seem for us.

I know anyone who reads this will agree that “It is not so easy to love every single person you meet”. We are commanded to love each person and sometimes it is soooo difficult.

It is not because we are not good people or because we didnt pray or because we dont wanna be like Jesus. No, it is not all that.

It just is too difficult because people are different and stupid and crazy and adamant and…..

Well, in short, they are not what we want them to be.

And that is when God tells us to ‘Bear with each other’

He knows it is not going to be easy. He knows it is going to take an effort. He knows it might drive you crazy and yet : ‘Bear with each other’.

Forbear each other’s burdens and pain. Forbear their nonsense and still say “God loves you and even though I don’t want to, I love you too. Because He loved me even when I was crazier than you.”

Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.

Memorise this verse because I can assure you, you might need it a couple of times a week or maybe even more than that.

Say it and ask for guidance when you have to deal with tough people. Do not go with the ‘flesh instincts’ as it might cause some serious damage to relationships and maybe even a broken jaw!! 😀

And if you have testimonies of how the heavenly wisdom helped you from doing something stupid, please do comment below. It might encourage another brother/sister struggling with patience and battles of relationships.
