Practicing kindness + the Colossians 3:12 style guide coloring page


Colossians 3:12 "put on" Bible verse character coloring page


This week we are attempting to "practice kindness." How could you say that kindly? How could you respond differently right now? I'm sure it's going to get annoying, but we have got to start some new habits (and stop yelling at each other). I could point my finger at my little people, but it might get dangerous with that big log in my eye. 
"Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?" Matthew 7:3
Yes, so we are practicing kindness this week and talking about this verse:
"Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience." Colossians 3:12
If you put your trust in Jesus, then you get to obey God, not out of fear or guilt, but as God's chosen ones, holy (made holy by the Son as a gift to you!) and beloved. You are His child and you have His Spirit living in you. All that remains is for you to live out your faith, or "put it on," in light of what He has done for you!

"What could you put on right now that God has given you?" is what we are asking in the middle of our muck. 

Here are a few things you could discuss with this verse:
  • How is anyone holy? Isn't it just God that is holy? (1 Corinthians 6:11)
  • What might the qualities to "put on" look like in your life?
  • Do you know you are beloved of God? How does that make you feel?
