1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Together they will be like mighty men trampling the muddy streets in battle. Because the LORD is with them, they will fight and overthrow the horsemen.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Be devoted to one another in...love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:.
