Colossians 3: 12-14 Printable Reflective Colouring Sheet 'Clothe Yourself..."

This Sunday is Bible Sunday in the Church of England Lectionary and we get one of my favourite epistle readings. Seeing the words in a visual way really helps to keep the message in mind. I usually do something with labelled pieces of clothing and then cover all of them with a coat marked love. We have the chance to talk about the pieces of 'clothing' we find hardest to put on and the examples we see in the lives of other people we know. Here's a printable reflective colouring sheet if you'd like to use it.

Talk about: 
  • What do these words mean? Kindness, humility, meekness, patience?
  • Which are you good at? which would you like to be better at?
  • what does it mean to 'wear' these things?
  • Who shows these things to you?
  • Why is love over everything?
  • How does love bring everything together?

Pray:  Choose one of the virtues mentioned in the verses. Choose something that you wear every day e.g. socks, shoes, hair bobble. Every time you put that thing on over the next week, ask God to help you to wear your chosen virtue so that others can see it in you.
