How do we love?
Be patient and kind to one another.
Do not envy our brothers and sisters.
Cast aside pride and embrace humility.
Be of good conduct and seek the interests of others.
Resist provocation and keep our thoughts on good things.
Take pleasure in the truth and not lies.
Be our brother’s keeper, always have faith, hope for good and persevere till the end.
Follow the love of God
