December 16-Brothers in Harmony
Scripture Lesson: Colossians 3:14
Today is the birthday of Billy Ripken the younger brother of Cal Ripken, Jr. In his 12 year career, Billy was able to play with his brother in Baltimore for seven of those seasons, often playing second base while Cal was at shortstop. Today the brothers host a weekly radio program on the MLB Radio Network.
Unity comes for believers when we bind everything we do in love. Paul took time to list virtues for each of us to strive to have in our lives in the preceding verses. But without the binding together of each of these virtues with love there can be no unity and harmony in living with others. We can possess every virtue listed but they are useless without love holding them together in our lives!
1. Why is love so important to have in our lives?
2. Why can we not be successful without love in our lives?
3. Describe God’s love for us.
When we have love in our hearts for God and our fellow man, we will be able to live lives that bring honor and glory to God. Without love we are nothing!
