Love is the purest form of devotion to another. We will look how Daniel, the Good Samaritan, George Washington Carver and World Vision express the love of God to others.
Brotherly Kindness is an act of good will toward others. We will look at: Jonathan and David, Barnabas and Paul, Mother Teresa and the Red Cross as examples for us to follow.
Godliness simply means God-likeness. We look at the lives of: Esther, Paul, and Amy Carmichael as examples of living a life of godliness.
