I led them with cords of human kindness,Hosea 11:4
with bands of love.
I was to them like those
who lift infants to their cheeks.
I bent down to them and fed them.
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.John 13:34-35
