Make God’s will the focus of your life day by day. If you seek to please Him and Him alone, you’ll find yourself satisfied with life.
Now you can have real love for everyone because your souls have been cleansed from selfishness and hatred when you trusted Christ to save you; so see to it that you really do love each other warmly, with all your hearts.
1 Peter 1:22
The Living Bible
Paul was Nero’s prisoner, but Nero was much more God’s.
