Text: Colossians 3: 12-14
Attributes of healthy, positive relationships are emphasized in this text.
Living together sometimes brings out the worst in us.
The Christians in Colossae were iiving with a lot of friction. Paul, the writer of Colossians, described (in verses 1-11) the negative things going on in the community. In verses 12-14 he lists values that will transform the people and their relationship with others to be constructive, responsible, loving, wise, unifying. In this short letter to the people of Colossae, Paul gives many other examples. All are grounded in the example provided by the redemptive work of Christ.
