He wrote them to observe the days as days of feasting and joy and giving presents of food to one another and gifts to the poor.
And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” … This is what the Lord Almighty said: “Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.”
Do we not all have one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our ancestors by being unfaithful to one another?
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. … Live in harmony with one another. … Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.
Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister. … Do not deceive one another. … Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
