Mal 2:3 If you do not listen, and if you do not take it to heart to honor My name, I will curse/diminish your blessings. Yes, I have already begun to curse them, because you are not taking it to heart. 3 I will spread dung on your faces...you will be carried off with it. 5 My covenant with Levi was one of life and peace, and I gave them to him; that he might fear me and he feared Me, and trembled before My name. 6 True instruction was in his mouth, and nothing false was found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace/harmony and uprightness, and he turned many from iniquity.7 For the lips of a priest should preserve knowledge, and people should seek instruction from his mouth, because he is the messenger of the LORD of Hosts. 8 But you have departed from the way, and your instruction has caused many to stumble. You have violated the covenant of Levi, 9 So I in turn have made you despised and humiliated before all the people, because you have not kept My ways, but have shown partiality in matters of the law

Jn 16:33  These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation, but,,,

III. Love increases as it is shared/used in a reciprocal rlshp (with God Jn 15 abide and others Heb 10:24; Eph 4:15)

2Cor 13:11 Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

1Thess 3:12 And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you,

1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  12 No on seen....If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.

Questions for Reflection/Discussion/Response:

1. Why would anyone need more or even abounding (grace), mercy, peace, and love? How does one go about getting it/them? 

2. Why are both teachers and believers often belligerently ignorant about the different time aspects of key words of the Christian life? 

3. How do/will you build yourself up in your most holy faith Jude 1:20 mercy, peace, love, and keep yourself in the love of God?
