Do not quarrel -- Be a servant of God - not of the devil

2Timothy 2:19-26

Love within the great comandment

1Corinthians 13:1  If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
1Corinthians 13:4-7   Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Matthew 22:37  And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
