Living In Love

8 The teacher must do the same in his teaching; and he who exhorts others, in his exhortation. He who gives should be liberal; he who is in authority should be energetic and alert; and he who succours the afflicted should do it cheerfully. 9 Let your love be perfectly sincere. Regard with horror what is evil; cling to what is right. 10 As for brotherly love, be affectionate to one another; in matters of worldly honour, yield to one another.
