 Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love..

Healing Words: Encouragement, Support, Loving Action

Let us think of ways to motivate one another for the purpose of sparking acts of love and good deeds.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact your are doing.
