Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Reading these verses, we can see the needed graces and attitudes of the heart and mind that can sustain anyone in these uncertain and challenging times. As we continue to lift all who are directly affected by the war in prayers and brace ourselves to respond promptly to the cry of help from our brethren in Ukraine, and thereby fulfill the command of Christ. We at this time must humbly seek to see all that is happening through the lens of biblical prophecies. Peace in times like these.
