‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart,

will be yours.

goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things
there is no law.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together,

|1 Corinthians 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.
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
For the Gentiles
seek after all these things,
and your heavenly Father
knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these thingswill be added to you.
Greater love has no one than this,
that someone lay down his life for his friends.
