Colossians 3:12-13,  “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other’ as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”

   The following is largely attributed to having been said by John Wesley although sources that discuss John Wesley argue that he never actually said this.  Still, the words are a guide for Christian behavior.

              Do all the good you can,

              by all the means you can,

              to all the people you can,

              in all the places you can,

              as long as ever you can.

   As we enter the new year perhaps this statement should be our resolve as we seek to bring new disciples before our Lord and Savior.
