Loving Others


“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” James 3:17 We meet a lot of different people and there will always be some we like better than others.  But in our walk with the Lord, we need to not treat one better than another.
