By Deborah Lovett:
In yesterday’s post, I suggested you look at a dozen scriptures for the New Year as resolutions. Here are more great scriptures, plus a tip for self-study that will help you nurture better relationships with others and reveal God’s love to them.
1) Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (EPHESIANS 4:32)
2) Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. (EPHESIANS 5:19)
3) Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. (EPHESIANS 5:21)
4) Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. (COLOSSIANS 3:13)
5) Teach and admonish one another. (COLOSSIANS 3:16)
6) Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. ( THESSALONIANS 5:11)
7) And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds. (HEBREWS 10:24)
8) Brothers, do not slander one another. (JAMES 4:11)
9) Live in harmony with one another, be sympathetic, be compassionate and humble. (1 PETER 3:8)
10) Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. (1 PETER 4:9)
11) Clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. (1 PETER 5:5).
12) Try your own Bible search! You can visit www.crosswalk.com to get you started. Also pray before you search and study, and ask God to help you apply what you learn.
As with the verses suggested in yesterday’s post, you can personalize these. Inserting your own name, plus the names of those you want better relationships with, to experience and show more of God’s love this new year.

This cute video, Hug-A-Rama, shows just how much people love hugs! Can you give someone a hug for Jesus?
Also, here’s the video that should have played with yesterday’s post, with rising harmony to encourage you to love others.
