Ron: Let’s talk about how to live.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: You know, more or less, according to Colossians 3 how we should live is to do some things more and some things less. Forgive others more just as the Lord has forgiven you. Be filled with peace in your interactions toward others and put on the virtue that ties all virtues together—love.

Now there are some things we should do less of: being angry, raging at others, speaking poorly about them or intending to do evil toward them, lying, and using crude language. Notice, more or less, we’re called to stop doing things that pit us “against” others and instead be “for” them, just as God, in Christ, is for us. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
