12/11 2 Peter 1-3

In his second book Peter writes about certain qualities we as Christians should possess.  He starts with faith and then tells us to add the following.

Brotherly kindness

5For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 8For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.

10Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, 11and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We should exhibit these qualities and they should continue to increase as we grow.  If we strive after these qualities then we will be effective and productive in our knowledge and work for the Lord.  What are you doing to allow them to grow in your life?
