Blessings and curses - short and sweet

We've looked at a lot of ways over the past month that we can choose blessings over curses, life over death; ways we can bless our community, our children, and our spouses. I think this passage from Colossians sums up the entire series:

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. (Colossians 3:12-14 MSG)

That's what it's all about - making choices that will honor God because it is those choices which lead lead us into life.
