“And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.” – Colossians 3:14
“In reviewing Paul’s previous description of charity, we learn that charity is not a single act or something we give away but a state of being, a state of the heart, kind feelings that engender loving actions.” – Silvia H. Allred
