Compassion & Love

Compassion & Love

Title: Compassion and Love
Original: 9 x 12 inches, watercolor on Arches
Text: Colossians 3: 12-14
Attributes of healthy, positive relationships are emphasized in this text. Sometimes being around others brings out the worst in us. The Christians in Colossae were living with a lot of friction. Paul, the writer of Colossians, describes (in verses 1-11) the negative things going on in the community. In verses 12-14 he gives values that will transform these relationships to be constructive, responsible, loving, wise, unifying. In this short letter, Paul gives many other good examples. All are grounded in the example provided by the redemptive work of Christ.
