Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

“One important distinction between awe and other emotions (like inspiration or surprise) is that awe makes us feel small — or feel a sense of ‘self-diminishment’ in science-speak. And that’s good for us,… We spend a lot of our time thinking about what’s going on in our world and what’s affecting us directly. ‘Awe changes that, making us see ourselves as a small piece of something larger.’”
