One of the main themes for Colosians chapter 3 is that we as Christians need to "put some things on" while "putting off things" that are not pleasing to God.
Let us observe verse 12 in Colossians chapter 3:
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
Humbleness of Mind
We are told as a Christian to "put on" humbleness of mind. It takes humility to serve God. Humbleness of mind will lead us to apologizing to the one we may have offended.
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
The enemy of souls works on pride. He doesn't want us to be humble. Our home will be a peaceful home when there is humility in the home.
The scripture in Micah 6:8 asked, "What is good?" The answer is "to walk humbly with thy God".
Here are other scriptures on humility to ponder:
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. James 4:10
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 1 Peter 5:6
It is important for us to be tender if we hurt somebody.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. Matthew 11:24-25
We need to be careful with what we say to others. We need to also be sensitive to others' sensitivities. We should be careful about holding on to things when we feel offended by someone who hurt us. If at all possible, we should carefully let that person know in a humble way in order to work through the hurt. It's not good to hold on to something and not give it to God.
Charity is the bond of perfectness. We need to be willing to "put off" anything that will hinder God being able to mold us the way He desires. Love needs to work in our lives. God's love is the bond of perfectness and without this love we won't be what God wants us to be. Love is the glue that cements us to God and one another.
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 1 John 4:12
When we love one another God's love is "perfected" in us.
But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked. Isaiah 57:20-21
Thank God there is peace in our hearts and lives.
