Why I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love to all the saints,…
Cultivate ever a spirit of love to all. Love is the diamond amongst the jewels of the believer's breastplate. The other graces shine like the precious stones of nature, with their own peculiar lustre and varied hues; but the diamond is white; now in white all the colours are united (as a prism will show), so love is centred every other grace and virtue; for we are told that "Love is the fulfilling of the law."
