Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you. Be careful that when you get on each other’s nerves you don’t snap at each other. Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.
God’s servant must not be argumentative, but a gentle listener and a teacher who keeps cool. So don’t lose a minute in building on what you’ve been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others.
