I read this chapter last night with the kids, and SO much of it convicted me! What an amazing and wonderful chapter on how then we should live.

"aim at what is in heaven... think only about the things in heaven, not the things on earth." v1,2

"So put all evil things out of your life..." v 5

"pout these things out of your life: anger, bad temper, doing or saying things to hurt others, and using evil words when you talk. Do not lie to each other." v8

You are being made new and are becoming like the One who made you. " v10

"Show mercy to others, be kind, humble, gentle, and patient. GEt along with each other and forgive each other. If someone does wrong to you, forgive that person... v14

Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking... always be thankful. v15

Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly. v16

Everything you do or say should be done to obey Jesus your Lord and in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus. v17

Wives, yield to the authority of your husbands... v 18

Parents, do not nag your children. If you are too hard to please, they may want to stop trying. v21

In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people. v23

This last verse has become my theme verse that I have taken to heart for my attitude around my home and family. This is my work, my ministry, my calling.
