Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

Colossians 3:12–13
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Bear With One Another

No one is perfect.

On the contrary, life is full of difficult people. Yes, even our brothers and sisters in Christ can set our patience to the test. But this verse tells us just how to deal with troublesome individuals—become a "put on!" Paul tells us to put on compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, and forgiveness.

The Bible speaks a lot about forgiveness because the Lord knows how often we need to forgive and be forgiven. It may not feel natural or easy, and that's why it's a put on, but this is how we bear with one another—through compassion, humility and forgiveness.
