And Be Thankful
As God's chosen people,
Holy and dearly loved,
Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Bear with each other
Forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.
Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Over all these virtues put on love,
Which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
Since as members of one body you were called to peace.
And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another
All wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
Gratitude in your hearts to God.
Whatever you do,
Whether in word or deed,
Do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
Giving thanks to God the Father through him.
