Love is kind. I Corinthians 13:4
AM I kind in my methods, seeking to guard my manner and my tones, knowing that they have much to do with every affair of life? Have I this mark of love pervading my actions and words and thoughts? Do I think of and am I considerate of others? Do I feel and manifest kindness toward them in word, in look, in act? A Christian, above all others, should be kind, courteous, gentle in the home, in his place of business, in the church—everywhere. In proportion as perfect love is attained, the constant effort of the heart will be to have every word and act, like the thoughts which prompt them, full of patience and kindness. Z'11-422 R4918:1(Hymn 44)
