Colossians 4:2-6 (NIV) read by Mark Beingessner

Colossians 4:2-6

Loving Divine Family,

We gather at your Beautiful Gate to celebrate your loving guidance. You invite us to be mindful of how we greet each other. The old way is full of folly and self-pleasure, lies and disobedience. Your new way is full of kindness and obedience, thoughtfulness and wisdom. We long for your ways, LORD!

We gather together, quieting ourselves and sharing with you our frustrations, anger, and hurt, so we can leave them at the door of our hearts. We relish in your love, which leads us to be alert and to give thanks. Thank you, Lover of our Souls! Your grace, mercy, and love fills us up and flows out to others. Thank you, for your love helps us to be kind and pleasant to ourselves first, and then to others. You are so amazing.

I seek to follow your ways today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…

Fill us with your wisdom, season our conversations with salt. We look for your perfect image in each other. Grant us the obedience to bow to your image in others as we seek balance. We will remember to seek you each day so your ways will be our foundation and we can greet each other in a good way.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
