Colossians    3: 12-21

3:12 Therefore, clothe yourselves like the elect of God: holy and beloved, with hearts of mercy, kindness, humility, modesty, and patience.

3:13 Support one another, and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive one another. For just as the Lord has forgiven you, so also must you do.

3:14 And above all these things have charity, which is the bond of perfection.

3:15 And let the peace of Christ lift up your hearts. For in this peace, you have been called, as one body. And be thankful.

3:16 Let the word of Christ live in you in abundance, with all wisdom, teaching and correcting one another, with psalms, hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing to God with the grace in your hearts.

3:17 Let everything whatsoever that you do, whether in word or in deed, be done all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

3:18 Wives, be submissive to your husbands, as is proper in the Lord.

3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be bitter toward them.

3:20 Children, obey your parents in all things. For this is well-pleasing to the Lord.

3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children to indignation, lest they lose heart.
