If you love, praise the Lord. If you want to praise the Lord more, love more, as it is written,
But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more… (1 Thessalonians 4.9–10).
Paul gave them credit for the love they had, but he also urged them to increase that love without ceasing.
