Colossians 4:1-2 -- On Authority, Prayer, and Thanks

"Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.
Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;"
Colossians 4:1-2

I like this idea of people being in positions of authority needing to specifically take care of those they manage or rule over, because they in turn are managed and ruled over by God.  It is a good thing to remember so that our egos don't grow oversized. :)  If we desire to be treated well, then we should treat others well.

I also like the combination of prayer and thanksgiving, again drawing us out of our focus on self and only using prayer to ask for things.  Thanking God throughout the day can be a powerful thing, and maybe one that we should put into practice.  When we get that focus on God and the amazing things that he has done around us, I think that we're automatically a little happier because our focus is on seeing the good.

Today, let's remember to treat others well, and to pray with thanksgiving. :)
