Series: The Power of Kindness
1 Corinthians 13:4
''Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.'' Matt. 22:37-40 (NIV)
''Love is kind.''
