Scripture Memory Monday

The verse that I decided to memorize this week is one that is familiar, as many of these verses have been. But I pray none of Scripture will become too familiar. May we hear with fresh ears and tender hearts each time that we encounter God's holy Word. This verse was from a passage that our Sunday school class looked at yesterday, and I was reminded how much I need to have this one memorized. Though we may encounter Colossians 3:12 often, my prayer is that we will be ever mindful of these attributes and "put on" these Christ-like virtues each morning as we prepare to face a new day. Let's make putting on these things the most important part of our morning routine.

"So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved,
put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience;"
Colossians 3:12 (NASB)

So glad you chose this verse! When we were reading it in SS yesterday I thought about using it as this weeks memory verse. I'm going to attempt 3:12 - 14 :)
