I guess what I really meant to describe is one that gives a list of instructions or even encouragements and then has to add in one more thing. Kind of like when you were a child and your momma would tell you to clean your room, do the dishes, vacuum, and pick up your shoes. When you think you have all the instructions it is like she comes back in the door and yells out one more thing - "and do it with a smile". That is what we have in Col. 3:15.
"Let the peace of Christ rule your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. (and here it comes, momma is fixin to step back in and give the last word.) And be thankful!"
Did you see it? God is instructing us to live at peace with one another because we are one body of Christ.............. and then adds - And Be thankful. I like that. It is like He adds that for a very certain reason. As if telling us to live in peace with one another cause He knows our minds will quickly go to the ones we don't get along with or don't like and says - Be Thankful!!
He always has the last word!! And we should be thankful!!! I love your Word, Lord!! Enjoy today!! I have got my plate full, full!
