    Great verse, reminding us that true Christian love is not hypocritical. Love and truth are never separate concepts in the Bible.

      Amen to that! I agree 100% – love is to be genuine, honest, truthful, authentic and not counterfeit. Always having a brotherly affection toward someone is exactly what it sounds like – you may get mad at your sibling from time to time when you know they’ve done wrong but you still have a deep love for them and forgive them always… i really enjoy this verse and it’s one of many favorites because of the connection and line it draws when it come to how we are to love our brothers or neighbors.
      You summed this up great! Thank you! God Bless!
