I noticed a thread dangling from the shoulder of one my shirts. I gave a the thread a quick tug, hoping that it would break off. Instead, the thread pulled all along the seam and made a huge hole. That single thread was holding the shirt together.
When Paul wrote a letter to the Colossian Christians, he talked about their new life in Christ and how they should love each other. Paul encouraged them to be kind, humble and gentle, and to forgive one another.
Paul also talked about Christians being united. In Colossians 3:14, he described this unity. “Together with these things, the most important part of your new life is to love each other. Love is what holds everything together in perfect unity.”
The thread in my shirt was very important — it held my shirt together. In the same way, it is very important for Christians to love each other. Love is what holds Christians together and gives them unity. When we love other Christians, we also encourage them to stand strong against the devil and his temptations.
Thank God today for other Christians who love you and support your ministry in His kingdom!
