12: 9 Paul present several simple and direct commandments and practical
admonitions in living the Christian life, especially our relationship with
brethren. Love (seeking the other's highest good) should abide among
brethren. It is displeasing to God when we have evil dispositions and
attitudes toward each other.
Love is to be genuine, not pretended or feigned., "without dissimulation." People can smother each other with "sweet talk" and not really mean it; "mushy" to your face but tear you apart behind your back. This is the kind of thing Paul says should NEVER be among brethren. Let love reign and be true.
