VerseD: Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

If you lack any of these fruits, examine yourself and your salvation. All of these will spring forth as you pursue the righteousness of God and love others.

VerseD: 1 John 2:15-16

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
1 John 2:15‭-‬16, NASB

Love your neighbor, but do not desire his things. Love your neighbor, but do not desire her. Love your neighbor, but do not seek authority.

Choose love. Always.

VerseD: Philippians 2:3

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

VerseD: 1 John 3:18

Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
1 John 3:18, NASB

It is not enough to point out sin and correction.

It is not enough to offer platitudes and comments.

We must be WITH people, helping, soothing, and encouraging, without neglecting the sin, the gospel, and nice words.
