God loves you and has chosen you.
You are a holy people.
You must be full of thoughtfulness for others, generous, gentle and patient.
Put up with one another; be ready to forgive each other if something goes wrong. The Lord has forgiven you. You must do the same.
And, most important of all, love each other. And may the peace of Christ fill your hearts.
This is why you belong to the Christian family. Always be thankful.
Remember the wonderful words of Jesus.
Be ready to teach and help each other, sharing what you know.
Be happy and enjoy singing hymns to God.
And in everything you say or do, do it as Jesus would want you to, giving thanks to God the Father.
