Colossians 3:13-14 says, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
Pray Hard Prayers:
David prayed in Psalm 139:23-24, “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
It is convicting to read that David asked the Lord to search His heart and test him. He wanted to know if there was any offensive way within him. This is the kind of humility required when we are seeking to be unifiers within a home. Instead of focusing on all of the issues that “the other person has” living under the same roof, we need to be asking God to evaluate our own hearts. We need to realize our own sin struggles and confess them, then ask the Holy Spirit to help us to turn in repentance away from them.
Call to Action:
-Who have you been pointing the finger towards at home?
-What sin in your life is preventing unity in your house?
-What can help you actively choose to put on love each day?

5 Best Love Stories From The Bible
The Bible is full of so many great stories, from struggle to triumph and impossible to miraculous. The most memorable for me are the love stories. There are many different kinds of love stories in the Bible, including parents with their children, friendships and loving your enemies, but I really like the marriage relationships in the Bible. You have to read and study the verses closely, but there is so much to learn about what true love really means and how to remain committed in your relationship.
