To take offense easily, and to seek to "pay back" any fancied injuries, are the opposite of these qualities. In love. If the heart is filled with love, the other qualities will be shown forth.

Discussion for Ephesians 4:2

  • Susan Dalton for verse 2
    "With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;"
    (Ephesians 4:2-3) Love is the bond that keeps us as we come unto perfect unity in Jesus Christ. The outworking of that love is peace.
