3:3 -Love and faithfulness are important character qualities. Both involve actions as well as attitudes. A loving person not only feels love; he or she also acts loyally and responsibly. A faithful person not only believes the truth; he or she also works for justice for others. Thoughts and words are not enough – our lives reveal whether we are truly loving and faithful. Do your actions measure up to your attitudes?

So shalt thou find favour and good understandin in the sight of God  and man.
