Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
So, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;
Let brotherly love continue.
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another anymore, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in our brothers way.
Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity.
Let your speech always be full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone.
So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives anyone I send receives me; and he who receives me receives him who sent me.«
