"Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor."                                                                                         Romans 12:10

"Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another..." I Thessalonians 4:9

     E. Find contentment in God's provision

"Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart.They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity."                                                                      Ephesians 4:17-19
