“Let us pursue the things which make for peace and the thing by which one may edify another.” Romans 14:19 Paul desired that the people in the church at Rome have a high standard of love. Both the strong and weak in the faith were judging and showing contempt for each other. They despised one another as they argued about petty things. Paul reminded them that their hearts should be concerned with pleasing others, not pleasing themselves. Let us love others despite our differences. Kindness is love flowing out in gentleness.
