Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. – Colossians 3:12-13
Jesus said the greatest commandment is “Love God with all your heart…” followed by “…love others as yourself.” Notice – we are last on the list. We are not only told that we should put others before ourselves, but we were shown how to do so by Jesus Christ as He lived – and was crucified – on earth. How much pain does our pride cause us and cost others?
