“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”.(John 3:16 NKJV).
“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love”. (1 Corinthians 13:1-8, 13 NKJV).
“Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust and sensual craving of the flesh and the lust and longing of the eyes and the boastful pride of life [pretentious confidence in one’s resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father, but are from the world. The world is passing away, and with it its lusts [the shameful pursuits and ungodly longings]; but the one who does the will of God and carries out His purposes lives forever”. (1 John 2:15-17 AMP).

OUR WORLD NEEDS Spiritual Anger Management .
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath (or to get anger);For the wrath (or anger) of man works not the righteousness of God.
•Resist and avoid anger at all cost.
…the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
•Where there is love, joy and peace anger must cease. Continue in love, joy and peace.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
