Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.
This is how we know what real love is: Jesus gave His life for us. So we should give our lives for our brothers and sisters.
We love because He first loved us.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
Do everything in love.
Accept those whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.
In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: rejoice!
