And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection. And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful.
St. Paul gives us good advice this Sunday. We are to put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forbearance, and forgiveness.
If we choose just one of these and hold to it, it will be a great New Year’s resolution. Perhaps the best resolution is let the peace of Christ control our hearts and that simply means we must love - the bond of perfection.
So let’s be perfect as Christ is perfect – that is, let's love one another.
