Proverbs of a 38 yr old man
The quality of your love. God in Christ has called you, so your lives must give him honor. You should be completely humble, gentle and patient. And you should show love to people who do not agree with you. Yes, strive to improve the quality of your love to stave off the superficial. Learning to be tolerant as you practice patience in your daily life. We should still show love to people who do not agree with us. And to be patient with the faults of another person as we continue to love that person when they do wrong things. We will have a rich quality of love if we would be like plants with roots in the ground of Christ's love. Our love for each other proves we have gone from death to life. But if you don't love each other, you are still under the power of death. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. Therefore be imitators of the Father's love as his beloved children. The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
